Music imprints itself on the brain deeper than any other human experience. It speaks to us in a different language and arouses every emotion. It connects us all, it is a force that ignites our souls.
Alive Inside is a documentary film that follows Dan Cohen’s Music & Memory project, a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing personalized music into the lives of the elderly and infirm, thereby vastly improving their day-to-day existence.
Telling a story of hope and beauty, the film follows Dan as he discovers the power music has to “awaken” minds most others consider dormant and deteriorating. The film features Dr. Oliver Sacks, Dr. Bill Thomas and the amazing men and women dedicated to patient care.
