THE LONG GOODBYE: AN ALZHEIMER'S STORY, 5min, USA, Documentary
Directed by Christian J. Harris
An intimate short story about Alzheimers and it's effect on it's victims and caregivers. Get an inside look of what it's like to live with this disease through the eyes of a couple who just won't give in.
"I did this film initially to raise awareness to how emotionally crushing it is to not only be the victim of Alzheimers but to be a caregiver. In this case it's a husband caring for his wife who he's essentially lost. I wanted to really harp in on "Long Goodbye" adage and to express that Alzheimers and Dementia are long, tortuous ways to lose a loved one. After showing friends and family they made it clear that this should be shared and that it might have the power to hit people where it counts and really raise awareness."
