In collaboration with Cardiff University sciSCREEN programme, the screening aims to engage audiences in dementia research through cinema. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion of 4 speakers who will relate their work to the topic/s covered in the film.
The film stars Gordon Pinsent and Julie Christie as a couple whose marriage is tested when Christie’s character begins to suffer from Alzheimer’s and moves into a nursing home, where she loses virtually all memory of her husband and begins to develop a close relationship with another nursing home resident.
Dr Alex Hillman will draw on her research from the IDEAL project when looking at the social aspects of dementia following the film.
The event will take place on Wednesday 18th May at Bute Building at 6pm – 9pm. Click here to register for the event #AFHsciscreen.
