Science on Screen: “Away from Her”

May 7 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Tuesday, May 7, 7 pm

Location: FilmScene at the Chauncey

Join us at FilmScene to view the film Away From Her, followed by a panel discussion and Q&A session related to dementia and Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and the issues of caregiving for those living with AD and other dementias. This event is “pay as you wish” and open to everyone.

About the film: After 50 years together, Grant (Gordon Pinset) and Fiona’s (Julie Christie) marriage is tested when she is moved into a nursing home after her Alzheimer’s begins to be exacerbated. With her memory fading fast, she begins to develop a new relationship with one of the other residents, transferring her affections to another man. Sarah Polley’s (Women Talking) feature directorial debut is a beautifully affecting story adapted from Alice Munro’s The Bear Came Over the Mountain.
