In Danville, California, Lee Gorewitz, a feisty, opinionated septuagenarian, wanders on a soul-searching odyssey through her Alzheimer’s & Dementia care unit. Confined by the limits of her physical boundaries, she scavenges for reminders of her life in the outside world. Yet her search is for more than a word, or a memory, or a familiar face. It is a quest for understanding. Check the  YOU’RE LOOKING AT ME LIKE I LIVE HERE AND I DON’T Trailer-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZWuQgn5sMM&feature=youtu.be

A total immersion into the fragmented day-to-day experience of an illness medicine still doesn’t entirely understand, YOU’RE LOOKING AT ME LIKE I LIVE HERE AND I DON’T, from Director Scott Kirschenbaum, is the first Alzheimer’s documentary filmed exclusively in an Alzheimer’s & Dementia care unit, and the first told from the perspective of someone suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. Widowed, cloistered, and slowly undone by her inability to think or speak clearly, Lee has every reason to succumb to the expectations of her conditions. Instead, she defies despondency. When she breaks down, she rebuilds. When she loses words, she summons emotions. And, despite the small defeats of her efforts, she remains an exceptional and resilient soul. YOU’RE LOOKING AT ME LIKE I LIVE HERE AND I DON’T reveals her penetrating ruminations and charismatic vitality, challenging our preconceptions of illness and aging. Here is the journey of a woman who will not let us forget her – even as she struggles to remember herself.
This special 10th Anniversary Edition release also includes a bonus documentary film from Kirschenbaum, Jumor: A Journey Through Jewish Humor, about the role of humor in Jewish nursing homes across the country.
