Remember The Time

Equipped with a host of mp3-players and an unshakeable faith in the healing powers of music, social worker Dan Cohen tours American nursing homes in an attempt to reach through to patients suffering from dementia. The results are astonishing: When reintroduced to their favorite songs, the patients seemingly jolt back into life, reconnected to the memories of their past. The resulting movie is a touching, yet uplifting, documentary which asks the poignant question: Who are we really without our memories?
