Film Festival: Challenging Assumptions - Different views of Dementia

A free pop-up film festival in association with Film Merton, Alzheimer's Society, Merton Council and Merton Arts Space. May 15th, 2.30pm, Mitcham Library (Arts Space) ‘Marjorie Prime’ (2017), rated 12, 1hr 39. In the near future, a time of artificial intelligence: 86-year-old Marjorie, living with dementia, has a handsome new companion who looks like her deceased husband and is programmed to feed the story of her life back to her. What would we remember, and what would we forget, if given the chance? May 16th, 2.30pm, Mitcham Library (Arts Space) ‘Firefly Dreams’ (2001), rated 12, 1hr 45. City brat Naomi is packed off to work at her aunt's hotel after her mother runs off with another man. She hates the hard work in the isolated hotel so her aunt arranges for her to look after an aging relative, Mrs. Koide, who has Alzheimer's disease. Naomi hates this, too, but gradually becomes intrigued by the old woman and the mysteries in her past. For more details please contact: Merton@alzheimers.org.uk / 020 8687 0922.
