Screening: Still Alice



Tinted Lens: Still Alice

The screening will be followed by an expert panel discussion and audience debate to explore some of the themes raised by the film, including the clinical assessment and diagnosis, the impact and experiences of having dementia, and the response and management of risk implications for other family members.

A collaboration between Chapter Arts Centre, the British Film Institute (Film hub Wales) and Cardiff University. This programme of events curated by Dr Katie Featherstone will explore contemporary social and cultural developments and the ideas found within new-release, cult and classic film, with a focus on understandings of the mind, human behaviour, memory, the life-course, and ageing. 

Speakers

Mark Jones leads the Younger Onset Dementia Service, Cardiff and will discuss the clinical work of the diagnosis and assessment of dementia and specifically the diagnosis and management for people with younger onset symptoms.

Alexandra Hillman is a social scientist and Wellcome Trust Fellow who will discuss her work on the diagnosis and classification of dementia and the personal impact of a diagnosis of memory problems.

Katie Featherstone is a sociologist of medicine and will draw on her research monograph ‘Risky Relations’ to explore the ways in which individuals and families manage and respond to a diagnosis that has risk implications for other family members.
