 IN CONJUNCTION WITH ITS 

ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE AWARENESS CAMPAIGN 2015

ADFM

IS HAVING A PREMIER SCREENING OF AWARD-WINNING MOVIE 

'STILL ALICE' 

31 JANUARY 2015 (Time and Venue to be advised)

STILL ALICE is a gripping tale of Alzheimer's disease ... it pains you to admit with Alzheimer's there is no fight and no hope !!!  Still Alice is a poignant potrait of Alzheimer's - portraying two distinct images, Two distinct people with “no treatment that slows the progression"

With some 123 thousand people living with the disease in Malaysia (44 million worldwide), the warm, compassionate but bitingly honest Still Alice will touch home for many people. The toll the disease takes on the life of a brilliant linguistics professor is superbly detailed by Actress, Julianne Moore in a career-high performance, driving straight to the terror of the disease and its power to wipe out personal certainties and identity. 

In STILL ALICE, Dr Alice Howland, happily married with three grown children, is a renowned linguistics professor who starts to forget words. When she receives a diagnosis of Early-Onset Alzheimer's Disease, Alice and her family find their bonds thoroughly tested. Her struggle to stay connected to who she once was is frightening, heartbreaking, and inspiring.  

Actress, Julianne Moore gives a complete embodiment of one of the most devastating and tragic diseases known to man. We instantly feel for this woman, her life and her family. Still Alice is written poetically and realistically - reflecting not only on true life but also what is ultimately desired.

It's a simple story, well told. Sad (bring tissues) yet it is an important reminder of how lucky we are to have good health and how devastating  Alzheimer's can be.

To raise awareness of this devastating disease which affected an estimated  44 million people worldwide, The Alzheimer's Association worked with the filmmakers to guide the script and ​character development.   

 Still Alice is about from the inside looking out ... (It) isn't only about dementia... It's About Alice, a woman beloved by her family and respected by her colleagues, who in the end, is still Alice, not just her disease. A person with Alzheimer's does not know they have had a bad day because everything seems normal to them. 

Learn about Alzheimer's Disease before you are forced to live with it. Everyone needs to see this movie. It really can happen at any time and there is no way to have who they were before... Please share this with anyone you know who has experience with Alzheimer's.

MEMORY AND BRAIN HEALTH

Being brain healthy is important at any age. It is particularly important once you reach middle age as this is when changes start to occur in the brain. To lead a brain healthy life you need to look after your brain, your body and your heart – the earlier the better.  The health of your brain plays a critical role in almost everything you do: thinking, feeling, remembering, working, playing and even sleeping. Emerging evidence suggests that people can reduce their risk for dementia and other…See More
