The Mind Altering Power of Music


Winner of the Sundance Film Festival Audience Award last year, ALIVE INSIDE is all about the mind-altering, remedial power of music and how music therapy could help fix broken healthcare systems. It chronicles the astonishing experiences of people living with memory loss who have been revitalised through music and includes interviews with neurologist and best-selling author Oliver Sacks, health workers and musician Bobby McFerrin. September is Dementia Awareness Month and this heart-warming documentary focussing on music therapy will bring hope to carers, families and the growing numbers of Australians affected by Alzhiemer’s and related conditions. Bring your tissues – it’s utterly soul-stirring.

Join us after the film for a discussion panel with Associate Professor Olivier Piguet (NeuRA), music therapist Belinda Burns (Nordoff-Robbins), Dr Kirstin Robertson-Gillam (UWS) and representatives from Alzheimer’s Australia.
