ALIVE INSIDE Screening 


 

Montgomery Hospice has been given the unique opportunity from Alive Inside creators to offer a screening of this amazing documentary. While physical and mental decline is overwhelmingly difficult, this documentary brings hope and leaves people inspired and in awe of the uplifting power of music.  Check out the trailer at http://www.aliveinside.us/#land.

 

Thursday, November 9th

Brookdale Olney

2611 Olney Sandy Spring Rd

Olney, MD 20832

 

Description:

ALIVE INSIDE is a joyous cinematic exploration of music’s capacity to reawaken our souls and uncover the deepest parts of our humanity. Filmmaker Michael Rossato-Bennett chronicles the astonishing experiences of individuals around the country who have been revitalized through the simple experience of listening to music. His camera reveals the uniquely human connection we find in music and how its healing power can triumph where prescription medication falls short.

 

This stirring documentary follows numerous visionaries in healthcare including social worker Dan Cohen, founder of the nonprofit organization Music & Memory, as he fights against a broken healthcare system to demonstrate music’s ability to combat memory loss and restore a deep sense of self to those suffering from it. Rossato-Bennett visits family members who have witnessed the miraculous effects of personalized music on their loved ones, and offers illuminating interviews with experts including renowned neurologist and best-selling author Oliver Sacks (Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain), healthcare visionaries Dr. Bill Thomas, Dr. Al Powers, Naomi Fiel, and musician Bobby McFerrin (“Don’t Worry, Be Happy”).

 

An uplifting cinematic exploration of music and the mind, ALIVE INSIDE’s inspirational and emotional story left audiences humming, clapping and cheering at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Audience Award.

 

Continuing education:

**This program counts towards Montgomery Hospice's Certificate in End-of-Life Care.
