MOTHER’S DAY MEMORIES Tackles Alzheimer’s Struggle and Family Conflict

Alzheimer’s

LOS ANGELES, Calif.  January 25, 2021

This multi award-winning short film takes an intense, provocative look at the disease’s effect on a family – with a woman’s Alzheimer’s at the center of her son’s agitation and her husband’s denial. Her condition worsens, increasing the tension until tragedy and the exposure of a family secret ensue.

In the spirit of Oscar@ winner Still Alice, this touching story dispels myths about Alzheimer’s, while evoking compassion for those affected by the disease. Mother’s Day Memories is based on Writer-Producer-Actor Bill Hoversten’s own mother’s story. Cannes-nominated Matthew Michael Ross directs the cast of Jody Jaress, Conrad Bachman and Kat Kramer (daughter of Oscar@ nominee Stanley Kramer Director and Producer of Judgment at Nuremberg, High Noon, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, and others).

The support organization Alzheimer’s LA praises the film, stating it “makes the case for understanding and empathy toward those struggling with Alzheimer’s.”

With the disease impacting a growing numbers of individuals  – as well as their loved ones and caregivers – Mother’s Day Memories could not be more timely.
