‘Alive Inside’ documentary film coming Saturday

The documentary film, “Alive Inside,” will be shown at 2 p.m. Saturday 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. The film features family members who have witnessed the miraculous effects of personalized music on their loved ones, and offers interviews with experts including renowned neurologist and best-selling author Oliver Sacks. An uplifting cinematic exploration of music and the mind, “Alive Inside” 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 Seventh-Day Adventist Church is located at 12889 Osborne Hill Road in Grass Valley.
