Music is Life
Music Is Life follows people living with dementia and Grammy Award winning musician, Simon Law, as they write and compose a song about the meaning of music in their lives. Music is everywhere at the Dotsa Bitove Wellness Academy, an arts-based academy of teaching-learning, where music is a medium for relationships, engagement and life enrichment. Based on research, this film captures how music is the essence of our humanity – the soundtrack of life. This film is filled with laughter, tears, joy, dancing and singing as members of the Bitove Academy community, along with Simon Law, openly share their experiences with music and dementia. This film opens us to consider music beyond intervention and therapy, as a powerful medium for relating with people living with dementia.
Video produced by: Anthony Grani with music written, recorded, and mixed by Simon Law. Executive produced by Christine Jonas-Simpson, Sherry Dupuis, Pia Kontos, Gail Mitchell.
