Documentary, 55 minutes, 2007, Produced by Michael Verde, Directed by Ted Kay

This groundbreaking documentary challenges conventional notions of people with Alzheimer's as "unreachable" and the disease as "the first of two deaths”. Hosted by Robert Pinsky, former U.S. Poet Laureate, There Is a Bridge offers a radically different perspective on Alzheimer's disease – that in the midst of all that is lost with dementia, much awaits to be found. The film explores the deep, complex nature of human solidarity by weaving together mental health, psychology, art, philosophy and education to highlight individuals and path- breaking programs for elders affected by Alzheimer's disease. 

This screening will be followed by discussion led by staff from the Vermont Alzheimer's Association.
