Screening at the Ascona Film Festival Switzerland

"Drift" is a poetic musing on solitude, isolation, loss and acceptance. The project was an immensely personal process, an exercise I undertook while coming to terms with my father's vascular dementia. I had a sense that we were both drowning, my father with the disease, and me as I failed to comprehend losing him. I looked to the Internet for answers and found numerous sites on the technical horrors of the disease process. I also found a wealth of information for caregivers, plus blogs for caregivers to share their stories and sorrows. I found very little for actual sufferers of cognitive damage. I eventually found the Center for Brain Health in Dallas Texas, an amazing collection of practitioners and researchers. Their committed staff of researchers and practitioners are focused on the individual, not the caregiver. Their point of view stems from the belief that no matter how far the disease has progressed, the core of the individual is still present, and what matters is what’s present, not what has been lost.

"Drift" has also screened at the Merwin Gallery Illinois Wesleyan University, the Chicago Intl REEL Short Film Festival, the Simultan Media Arts Festival Romania, and the Antena Gallery Chicago.
