Post-film discussion with Emily Christensen, President of Utah Association of Music Therapists, and Rosemary Quatrale, Older Adult Service Coordinator of Jewish Family Service.

A joyous exploration of our relationship with music and how it can reawaken our souls. This stirring documentary follows social worker and founder of the nonprofit organization Music & Memory, Dan Cohen, as he fights against a broken healthcare system to demonstrate music’s ability to combat memory loss and return a deep sense of self to those suffering from dementia.

Winner: Audience Award–2014 Sundance Film Festival, Audience Award–2014 Provincetown International Film Festival, Best Documentary–2014 Fort Myers Beach Film Festival

Jewish Family Service of Utah will also be at the screening to accept donations of new or gently used equipment (working iPods, charging cords and plugs) and iTunes gift cards as part of the Music & Memory program — a wonderful program that helps older adults with dementia or other age related concerns reconnect with precious memories through personalized music.
