A new movie about family, Alzheimer's-related memory disorders, caregiving, music, hope and love, MY FATHER'S HOUSE, was shot over four years, chronicling the story of Dr. Peter Reimann and his family's journey with his illness and death. The movie is also very explicitly about end-of-life and the wish for those we love to die peaceful, dignified deaths.
Our aim is to raise awareness via this personal family story so that future generations will suffer less, so that prevention and effective treatment is found and with hope that the pending financial healthcare crisis due to these diseases be diverted, replaced by effective policy and action.
Until now, the film has been funded completely by Hannah and the Reimann family. Please help us in our efforts to raise awareness and action via this personal family story and ongoing advocacy for people with dementia.
Half the people over 85 in the US will get Alzheimer's Disease -- it is the 3rd leading cause of death in people over 65 years of age and every 67 seconds someone is diagnosed with it.
Two years ago an estimated budget for completion funds was drawn by a producer for $250,000. Another $50,000 was added recently. Dr. Reimann died in March 2012. After mourning his loss and beginning to reivew the hundreds of hours of footage, it is time to complete the documentary feature film. We intend it will have a running time of 90-120 minutes.
