Hello CNAP Visitors : 'Alive Inside' is a documentary movie (on music and the brain). Showing at the Bloor Cinema from July 25, 2014 to July 31, 2014.
Alive Inside follows Dan Cohen, a social worker who decides on a whim to bring iPods to a nursing home. To his and the staff’s surprise many residents suffering from memory loss seem to awaken deeply locked memories when they listen to music from their past. With great excitement, Dan turns to renowned neurologist Dr. Oliver Sacks, and together they investigate the mysterious way music functions inside our brains and our lives. Alive Inside focuses on one man’s journey, but also questions what it takes to re-start a life that has faded away.
