DREAMS

Director Angelo Longoni
12 min., 2019, Italy

The film «Dreams» talks about Alzheimer’s disease, with the aim of raising public awareness of the disease, which has not yet been studied enough, but is the most common cause of dementia among the elderly population of Western Europe. Each of us remembers the most important events of our lives. In the mind of a patient with Alzheimer’s, memories fade and merge, distorting reality. People, facts and things are transformed, as if under the influence of mysterious magic. The environment changes, relatives, friends and relatives change, they themselves become different or perceived by themselves as being at a different age, in a different time period.
