Free Screening of Award Winning Documentary

Oct 30, 2019

Local filmmaker, Eric Gordon, will host a complimentary screening of his award winning film, When All That's Left is Love, a sensitively-directed documentary about the caregivers of individuals suffering from dementia, on Wednesday, October 30 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at the Movies of Delray, 7421 West Atlantic Avenue.

The event is FREE and open to the public. Due to limited seating, advance registration is recommended at http://bit.ly/2KdwPqd.

Guests will be invited to a free continental buffet breakfast from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., followed by the film screening at 10 a.m. Afterward, attendees will be invited to visit various theaters for presentations by sponsors and caregiving support organizations.
 
In When All That’s Left is Love, director Eric Gordon has returned to live with his parents so that he can relieve his aging mother, Marilyn, of the sole care for his Alzheimer’s-afflicted father, Shelly. Eric joins his mother in caregiving, even as he captures unprecedented footage of the progression of his father's illness and his mother’s increasing inability to cope.
 
This documentary uniquely presents the difficult inside story of the caregivers’ journey, as viewed by a son. The film focuses on Marilyn Gordon and a neighbor, Arline Rothman, as they struggle to care at home for spouses who are living with Alzheimer's disease. Through their experiences, we learn about the lives of caregivers. Individuals who are courageous and worthy, yet utterly human, who—out of love—have taken on the most overwhelming role of their lives.
