This music video shines a light on an increasingly prevalent and heart breaking disease in which the victim gradually forgets personal history, how to function in society and how to survive. ‘Who I Am’ is performed by Jon Pousette-Dart and Jaime Kyle for our upcoming feature documentary ‘Forget Me Not’ on the subject of Alzheimer’s disease. Pousette-Dart has also included the song is his forthcoming CD release ‘Anti Gravity’.

‘Isle of Capri’ – official IFFM selection, screening in NYC this weekend

Our award-winning documentary short, “Isle of Capri: A Song Of My Mother” will screen this weekend in the Cinema Shorts section at the International Film Festival of Manhattan.

WHEN: Sunday, Nov. 13th @ 4:00pm
WHERE: Quad Theater, 34 13th Street, New York City

Make sure to come out and see the film on the big screen! There will also be an opportunity to meet the filmmakers and take part in a Q&A!

In “Isle of Capri,” Filmmaker Dawn Young and her husband, singer/songwriter Jon Pousette-Dart, enhance her mother’s life, and that of her housemates, through music. Thanks to the songs of her mother’s youth, the filmmaker is able to open the door to the far away remembrances of the past once again. Dawn is able to find her mother who is touched by Alzheimer’s disease and intimately share the last years of her life until their final moments together.

Isle of Capri has been featured at the Martha’s Vineyard Film
Festival, the “WilliFest” in Brooklyn, the NY/LA Film Festival, The Art of Brooklyn Film Festival, and The Lifetree Film Festival where it won “The Lifetree Film Award”.
