Alzheimers disease: When you lose your memory you lose yourself

So what shall we talk about at the present? How good it is.

This short film from Director Eliot Rausch is an amazing and heartbreaking piece of work about the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease.
Talking about this terrible disease is difficult. There is no cure. It’s a grueling process to the point of death.
And what the man says in the film: “When you lose your memory you lose yourself”.

The film is also about love. And grief. How hard it is to lose the memories you share together.
