The Genius of Marian USA, 2013, 85 minutes Director: Banker White
The Genius of Marian is a visually rich, emotionally complex story that follows Pam White in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease as her son documents her struggles to retain her sense of self. Pam deals with the fear that she will be institutionalized, as her own mother was before she died of Alzheimer's. It's not only a chronicle of the progress of Pam's disease, it also serves as a meditation on what we inherit from the generations before us and the role of memory in creating legacy.
