今年一部名为《困在时间里的父亲》(《The Father》)的电影成功“出圈”了,其中有影帝安东尼·霍普金斯和影后奥利维亚·科尔曼共同坐镇。但这部获奥斯卡六项提名、被网友们盛赞为“教科书级别“的电影,绝不仅仅只是因为强大的演员阵容,更是因为其传递的能量和背后引发的思考。

这部电影讲述了阿尔兹海默症老人安东尼在生活中挣扎的故事,与之前类似主题作品不同的是,它从阿尔兹海默症患者的视角,以循环往复、碎片凌乱的镜头,带领观众设身处地地感知他们在患病时那种对周遭的困惑、质疑以及源于自身的委屈、无助。
这部电影让更多的人开始关注痴呆症人群,但其实一些公益组织早已经在为改善他们的生活而做出努力了,其中一个就是My Life Films。

About My Life Films
Founded in 2014, My Life Films is a UK-registered not-for-profit charity dedicated to improving the lives of people affected by dementia. We are a group of passionate filmmakers who believe that every person has a wonderful life story to tell. Our vision is a world where pe

We currently offer two Life Story film packages. The first is a 30-minute film featuring images from family albums, interviews with our ‘star’ and their family members, accompanied by their favourite music tracks. We also edit this to make a shorter Carer film.
I promote our services to people living with dementia and their families and carers through presentations, public outreach/social media and I work with the filmmakers to make sure the filmmaking goes smoothly from start to finish.
We're also currently doing a lot of marketing for our new My Life TV service-
a dementia-friendly TV channel:

Tell us a bit about your daily activities at the organisation.

After completing a Masters in media for development and social change, I was very interested in using media to help people through participatory filmmaking. My Life Films is very innovative and you can see the positive impact the life story films have in helping people living with dementia. My Grandma had dementia and I could really see how our services could have benefitted her.

What attracted you to My Life Films.

目前,全世界大约有5000万痴呆症患者,其中有六七成是阿尔茨海默症,他们被称为“百年孤独”,正如电影最后主人公安东尼已经忘记了自己的名字,还有什么会比将自己当成陌生人,更让人孤独吗?不管是这部电影还是这次讲座,它们可能是大家关注和帮助痴呆症患者的起点,但相信它们不会是终点。
