“Who I Am” music video screens in the Garden State Film Festival

Garden State Film Festival Showing of “Who I Am”Our music video, “Who I Am”, has been selected by the Garden State Film Festival and will be shown on March 25th 2:30pm at the Asbury Park City Council Chambers. As an independent filmmaker, whose own mother and grandmother suffered with Alzheimer’s, I sought an alternative way to help my mother and I deal with this devastating disease. Along with my husband Jon Pousette-Dart, I embarked on a journey to find a way to enhance my mother’s, and her housemates’, existence through music and the evocations that it brings. As an outcome, Jon, Jamie Kyle and I wrote and produced the multi award winning music video “Who I am,” which will be included in the upcoming documentary “Forget Me Not.”

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.

The diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease to a family member is devastating. Past history between you is erased and there is no longer a keeper of past records. This long goodbye doesn’t have to be considered a “death sentence” but rather can be viewed as a process of “living with an illness” since there’s a lot a caregiver can do to enrich these years.  Filmmaker Dawn Young enhances her mother’s life through music. This short film shows how listening and entering their world, where ever that may be at the present moment, instead of forcing them into our present reality works best  Thanks to music and 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, 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 and the “WilliFest” both in September 2010 and The Life Tree Film Festival May 2011 where it  won “The Best Short Lifetree Film Award”.
