Someplace Nice's Andy Ferreira Directs "Forgetting the Past" for Alzheimer Society
This PSA for the Alzheimer Society of Calgary and Dementia Network Calgary captures the intimate nature of memory loss.
In the 45-second spot, a woman is recalling her brother’s experience as a soldier in World War II. As he runs through a forest dodging bullets in a flashback, she struggles to recount details of the story--the timeline, his rank, the nature of his injuries--before giving up.
The tagline appears: “Dementia takes more than memories.”
Created and directed by Andy Ferreira of Toronto-based Someplace Nice, “Forgetting The Past” is a heartbreaking reminder of the emotional and physical tolls degenerative brain diseases take on individuals and their families.
“Forgetting The Past” is currently appearing online and will be broadcast on regional television stations in Calgary.
