“When Barbara Klutinis and her husband joined an Alzheimer’s support group for couples, she heard stories that she thought others should hear, too.
…Klutinis decided to capture on film the kind of unvarnished and candid discussion that emerged in private, sometimes with a poetry of its own. Her film, she said, is intended to show people that there is a way to get through this, that one does not have to feel alone.”
Couples affected by a partner’s recent diagnosis of Early Alzheimer’s come to terms with their changing roles. Prominent Alzheimer’s medical experts offer their perspectives on the disease. The conversation generated by "Still Alice" continues here.
"Barbara Klutinis’ film gets to the heart of what it’s really like to be newly diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease."
