ALIVE INSIDE is a joyous exploration of our relationship with music and how it can re-awaken our souls to discover the deepest parts of humanity. This stirring documentary follows social worker Dan Cohen as he fights against a broken health care system to demonstrate music’s ability to combat memory loss in patients with Alzheimer’s and dementia, and return a deep sense of self to those suffering from it. Through illuminating conversations with experts such as renowned neurologist Oliver Sacks and musician Bobby McFerrin, and astonishing experiences with patients around the country, revitalized by their love of music, filmmaker Michael Rossato-Bennett has crafted an uplifting, feel-good cinematic experience that sweeps audiences up in its inspirational and moving story. Winner of the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, ALIVE INSIDE leaves viewers humming, clapping and cheering. (USA, 2014)
