The results are in! The short movie, “Isle of Capri: A Song of My Mother” about how music enhances the lives of Alzheimer’s patients and the music video of our original song, “Who I am”, performed by Jon Pousette-Dart and Jaime Kyle on the same subject (View it here) both won first place awards in their categories at the Lifetree Film Festival!
Shawna Schultz, one of the coordinators of the event, got in touch with me just recently to tell me the good news. What’s more, she said the audiences were truly moved by both films. It’s so inspiring to hear that our story touched others so deeply. It reminds me once again how many people share this burden in life. It’s my hope that these films, and the upcoming feature film Forget-me-not, will reinvigorate dialogue about this issue and will help spur improvements in how we care for those affected by Alzheimer’s.
Here’s to getting the word out! Thank you to everyone who has contributed to help make these films, and thank you to Lifetree Cafe and the Lifetree Film Festival! Wishing you all the best.
