‘Alive Inside’ documentary film Saturday in Grass Valley (VIDEO)

The documentary film, Alive Inside, will be shown 2 p.m. Aug. 8 at at Grass Valley Seventh-day Adventist Church.

The film follows social worker Dan Cohen, founder of the nonprofit organization Music & Memory, as he fights against a broken healthcare system to demonstrate music’s ability to combat memory loss and restore a deep sense of self to those suffering from it.

Rossato-Bennett visits family members who have witnessed the effects of personalized music on their loved ones, and offers illuminating interviews with experts including renowned neurologist and best-selling author Oliver Sacks (Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain) and musician Bobby McFerrin (“Don’t Worry, Be Happy”). An uplifting cinematic exploration of music and the mind, Alive Inside’s inspirational and emotional story left audiences humming, clapping and cheering at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Audience Award.

Admission is free and everyone is invited to attend. The church is located at 12889 Osborne Hill Rd in Grass Valley.
