The onset of his dementia brought a dramatic change to the relationship filmmaker Hannah Minzloff has with her father. Dementia, Dad and Me follows the two of them as they find new ways to connect, and to navigate the delicate transition of their roles from father and daughter to caregiver and cared for.
Her father’s deep attachment to his archive of photographs and keepsakes is a touchstone for our conversations, and while naturally an introvert he has always had strong recollections of the stories which shaped his family’s life.
"One of the important parts of the film is that people connect to Hannah’s journey. It is real and authentic. It can be hard to describe this caregiving journey in words but Hannah did it with honesty and love that is very realistic." - Linda Bird Program Director, Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia
