MUCH TOO YOUNG

Much Too Young is a documentary that follows four families as they deal with Alzheimer’s disease at a shockingly young age.

It’s more common than we think. There are more than half a million cases in Canada today. And some ten percent of these cases affect people under sixty years of age.

Alzheimer’s disease has dramatically altered the lives of these teenagers and twenty-somethings as they live day-to-day, shouldering the burden of helping care for their parents. The film reveals the intense relationships between each family member, and how the family dynamic has altered from a typical parent-child relationship. The film powerfully demonstrates how this disease not only affects the person diagnosed and the primary caregiver, but how it takes a toll on the family and someone in the prime of their lives – the children caregivers.

Users will hear, see, and feel what it’s like to suffer from Alzheimer’s related dementia through their choice of platforms including web based viewing, windows desktop HMDs, android, and iOS devices. The objective of the app is to use the power of immersive story telling to create empathy and promote positive social change while bringing awareness to the issues around Alzheimer’s and the film Much Too Young.
