A Walk Down Memory Lane

Thu, 12/13/2007 - 5:00am

A Walk Down Memory Lane is a one-of-a-kind film experience, designed specifically for people living with memory loss and their loved ones. Short clips from classic films will be shown, immediately followed by audience discussion and reminiscence, guided by a moderator.

Originally presented in partnership with The Tribeca Film Institute, this program demonstrates how film can be a form of treatment for people living with cognitive impairment. It shows how film has the power to connect us with our deep-rooted emotional memories ~~ the kind that never leave us.
