Summary
"The first documentary filmed in an Alzheimer's unit told from the perspective of an Alzheimer's patient. In Danville, California, Lee Gorewitz wanders on a personal odyssey through her Alzheimer's & Dementia care unit. From the moment she wakes up, Lee is on a quest-- for reminders of her past, and her identity. A total immersion into the fragmented day-to-day experience of mental illness, 'You're looking at me like I live here and I don't' is filled with charismatic vitality and penetrating ruminations that challenge our preconceptions of illness and aging. Here is one extraordinary woman who will not let us forget her, even as she struggles to remember herself."--Container.
