Rich Pickings: Disappearing Act
Over 750,000 people in the UK suffer from dementia.
Inspace events are run independently of the EIFF Box Office. To book tickets click on the link below.
This event presents a series of short films exploring the disease in its many forms, from the viewpoint of sufferers and carers alike. Alongside affecting tales of loss, confusion and isolation, this wandering journey offers unexpected moments of comic absurdity, clarity of insight and joy of life. The screening will be followed by a discussion with filmmakers and scientists, as well as those who have experienced dementia, who will together investigate the thoughts and stories addressed in the films and look at other issues around this terrifying but common condition.
Geoff Huggins - Head of Mental Health, Scottish Executive
Jan Killeen - Director of Policy, Alzheimer Scotland - Action on Dementia
Lindsay Goodall - Filmmaker
