Gentle Oblivion

Martin Hampton will be screening a film from a project he’s been working on for the past few months about memory loss, called Gentle Oblivion. In his words:

“It’s a portrait of my half sister Jacqueline, who since being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s 6 years ago, has lived more or less alone in the mountains of Provence. The stigma attached to the term Alzheimer’s Disease invokes fear and panic. As life expectancy continues to rise at a rate of 5 hours a day it becomes ever more probable that we will experience dementia ourselves. But if we treat this gradual slide out of reason as a natural phase of life, perhaps as the symmetrical counterpoint to infancy, might we become less afraid to plan for, and more willing to adapt to, the life changes it demands?"

Gentle Oblivion – a film by Martin Hampton – duration 35mins

Friday April 9th and Saturday April 10th @ 9pm
