Alzheimer's: A Love Story Previous Broadcasts

KQED 9: Sat, Jul 1, 2017 -- 4:00 AM

A moving short documentary on the power of love through all obstacles, Alzheimer's A Love Story beautifully captures one couple's intimate struggle with a disease that indiscriminately impacts millions of elders. Those diagnosed live an average of eight years after their symptoms first become noticeable. It has been 11 years for Greg, who now lives in a memory care facility in Chicago. And every day, his husband Michael; a practical, kind, earnest, and resilient man who looks like Santa Claus and approaches the disease with the practicality of a retired educator (which he is), visits the love of his life and fights to preserve the memory of their 40 years together. Alzheimer's A Love Story has screened at over 50 film festivals internationally and won both audience and juried awards, including both the Best Short Film and Best LGBT Film at the Cannes American Pavilion Emerging Filmmakers Showcase.
