Reservations for this session are now open.

Join us for the interview of film director Simon Ball and screening of his short film ‘Do I See What You See?’. Shorts and Talks are a mini series, and part of the Enabling Festival 2020. We will be exploring what it is like to live with dementia and how film can be used to increase dementia awareness and understanding. Join us for these short film screenings and the interviews their creators.

Do I see what you see? directed by Simon Ball, is about the experiences of people living with Posterior Cortical Atrophy (PCA), a rare form of dementia that affects the visual areas of the brain. This film was funded by Created Out of Mind and Alzheimer’s Society, supported by Wellcome. Credit music is by Valerie Blumenthal and Sound Design by Zai Tang.

This year the Enabling Festival focuses on sight, literally and metaphorically, and asks “Do You See What I See?”

Dementia can disrupt how we see. Imagine a world where you can no longer be sure if ANYONE else can see what you see. 

Imagine not being able to trust what is happening right in front of your very own eyes. 

Join us this year at the virtual Enabling Festival, we’re online. We invite you to see the world through the eyes of a person living with dementia and his/her caregiver; an online educational and creative festival happening September 25  to 16 October 2020. Our series of talks, digital meetups, thought leaders’ interviews and video streamings, deliver key information on dementia and caregiving that we think everyone should have access to. A full programme of online events, all FREE to register can be found on our website.
