Community Matters: Alive Inside

“The philosopher Kant once called music ‘the quickening art’.” (Oliver Sacks)

Winner: Audience Award at Sundance!

When social worker Dan Cohen brought iPods to a nursing home, he witnessed a miracle: Even some of the most unresponsive dementia patients “awakened” when listening to music from their past. With renowned neurologist Oliver Sacks providing context, this is a groundbreaking, moving investigation into the mysterious way music functions in our brains.
