Just got back from the theater after watching this beautiful and thought provoking documentary. It will probably make you cry.

Here is a trailer......see if its playing in your area.

If there is anyone who has seen this I am curious about your thoughts on music therapy from a Buddhist perspective. Alzheimer's in general is an interesting topic as it relates to Buddhist thought, but this treatment to me is even more fascinating in how it might correlate with the benefits of meditation and mantra. Music can literally bypass some of the symptoms and create relief.

This documentary gives a lot of information about the societal views of aging and the treatment of those in their latter years as well the fear that much of modern society has about death.

For an excellent documentary on death and someone worth checking out :
