“Who I Am” receives a new award!

Laurel-AWARD-OF-EXCELLENCEOur music video  of the song “Who I Am”   http://wp.me/ptiX7-8o  written by Jon Pousette-Dart, Jaime Kyle and myself and performed by Jon and Jaime  has been honored again!  The International Film Fest for Environment, Health & Culture-Jakarta, Indonesia will screen the video during their festival in May.  http://internationalfilmfestivals.org/EHC/winners.htm  (scroll down to “Documentary Shorts”)

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.

“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.”

Make your year-end Tax Deductible donations to the production of our Alzheimer’s doc “Forget Me Not” !

Due to the great interest in our music video for the song “Who I Am” on the subject of Alzheimer’s we have set up a way for folks to make donations towards the completion of our feature length documentary on the same topic. In the absence of any cause or cure breakthroughs to date, in this doc we are concentrating on practical ways for caregivers to cope and successfully stay connected as best as possible with their loved ones affected by this disease in their long and often lonely journey. In addition, we will empower caregivers with ways to stay healthy and strong in order to deal both with the incredible burden of caregiving and with the prevention of Alzheimer’s in their own bodies.

Donate through the non profit New York Women in Film and Television here:
