MY MOM AND THE GIRL comes with an important mission: to change the conversation about Alzheimers. By all accounts, it is succeeding. And now, with the announcement of Bill Gates commitment to Alzheimer's, this little movie may just be more important than ever. A darling in this year's festival circuit, My Mom and The Girl is a short film with a long list of things going for it. To begin, it stars Valerie Harper in her first role since her cancer diagnosis 5 years ago, it's based on a true story that resonates across generations and cultures, and it manages to authentically portray a tough subject in such a way that makes audiences laugh and fills them with hope at the same time.
(My Mom and The Girl has dynamic alliances with both Alzheimer's Greater Los Angeles and UsAgainst Alzheimer's)
