A Meet and Greet reception will be held in the lobby from 6:00 to 6:30 with the film to follow.  Following the film a Q & A session will be held with special guest.

Alive Inside is a joyous cinematic exploration of music’s capacity to reawaken our souls and uncover the deepest parts of our humanity. Filmmaker Michael Rossato-Bennett chronicles the astonishing experiences of individuals around the country who have been revitalized through the simple experience of listening to music. His camera reveals the uniquely human connection we find in music and how its healing power can triumph where prescription medication falls short.

This stirring documentary follows social worker Dan Cohen, founder of the nonprofit organization Music & Memory, as he fights against a broken healthcare system to demonstrate music’s ability to combat memory loss and restore a deep sense of self to those suffering from it. Rossato-Bennett visits family members who have witnessed the miraculous effects of personalized music on their loved ones, and offers illuminating interviews with experts including renowned neurologist and best-selling author Oliver Sacks (Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain) and musician Bobby McFerrin (“Don’t Worry, Be Happy”).

The documentary won the 2014 Sundance Audience Award as well as other national and international awards and has been featured on NPR and other major news outlets.

The screening is free and open to the public.  Seating is limited so please RSVP:  Facebook Page, 417-627-9322 or email lisa@charlottesangels.com
