Usually, I will see a movie and then share my thoughts on what I thought of it.  This time, I would like to let you know about a movie I am looking forward to seeing.  The movie, “I Go Gaga my Dear.” will be shown at the JCCC on Thursday September 26, 2019.  I think this movie is particularly relevant to the JSS community.  Our programs and services include helping with the elderly, many of whom are experiencing Alzheimer-related issues.
In this movie, Naoko Nobutomo has made a very personal documentary on the everyday routines of her nonagenarian parents in Hiroshima, as her mother struggles with Alzheimer’s-related dementia and her father tries to cope with both his wife’s condition and his own age troubles. The director is said to present a realistic drama, but I think it will also provide an uncannily captivating portrait of those individuals that our JSS programs and services make every effort to support.
The film screening, hosted by JCCC and sponsored by JSS, will take place at the JCCC on Thursday, September 26, 2019 at 7:00pm (Tickets: $10 JCCC member, $12 General). For further information, please visit the JCCC website.
