On the subject of Alzheimer’s and my experience with my mother, the song highlights the journey traveled by those who have lived with a loved one experiencing “the long goodbye”. Hopefully this attention will raise awareness of the need for more answers in the search for causes and cures for the ever increasing appearance of this disease.
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.”
