I came across this movie that is playing tonight in Stamford at the Avon Theater.

Excerpts from the description.

“As dementia continues to affect millions of elderly Americans, Alive Inside: A Story of Music & Memory reveals a remarkable, music-based breakthrough that has already transformed lives …. we learn that songs from a patient’s past can awaken memories and emotions that have been asleep for years, sometimes decades …. Countless instances in Alive Inside provide proof that music stimulates activity in dementia-affected parts of the brain and transforms the quality of life of those often left to languish in silence.”

It was a 2014 Sundance Film Festival Audience Award Winner for Best Documentary.
