Somerville-Cambridge Elder Services and the Older Adult Behavioral Health Network are excited to host a virtual screening of the acclaimed documentary The House We Live In, followed by a discussion with the filmmaker.
A decade in the making, a young filmmaker confronts family, memory and addiction as he chronicles his father‘s journey to recover lost memories following a traumatic brain injury. Using experimental approaches with projected installations, he attempts to find those missing memories in hopes of finding the dad he used to know. As memories return in the form of dreams, the family struggles with acceptance of this new version of their father.
The screening starts at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, May 25. Click here to register for the screening via Zoom. There will also be a post screening discussion with the filmmaker about caregiving, mental health, and traumatic brain injury resources.
