I always read reviews prior to seeing a movie in a regular commercial movie theater, with one exception: Rivertown Film in Nyack. Their selection of films, often participants and winners of famous film festivals, are engaging and thoughtful. They make you think about what matters: sincere friendships, good memories, how we mature growing old and realizations on what our life's journey may be about.

This week's selection is the documentary "Alive Inside" by filmmaker Michael Rossato-Bennett. "The film explores the impact music has on our lives. Dan Cohen has devoted himself to equipping nursing homes with music, in the fervent belief in its rejuvenating power. His message is that music can serve to confirm our essential, irrepressible, and shared humanity, and his goal is to bring the visceral joy back to the lives of Alzheimer’s patients by unlocking their memories with music from their past. The result can be an astonishingly reawakened sense of self. Renowned neurologist Oliver Sacks helps explain the connection between music and the mind." - See more at: http://www.rivertownfilm.org/films/alive-inside/#sthash.B6DsqQcP.dpuf

The event starts at 7.30 pm on Wednesday, November 19th with a musical session conducted by Nyack's Jeffrey Friedberg, also a music therapist, followed by the film at 8 pm and a Q&A afterwards.
