Two showings of YOU ARE HERE - at Huntington Hospital May 8th and Winthrop University Hospital two nights later, drew nearly two hundred and dozens of sponsors. Here are some of the comments:
"I am of film fan, so beyond the meaning and import of your film, I was really impressed the way this film so well characterizes, especially, the situation partners will find themselves in, and you did it through your management of character and detail, which was few films do a good job with any more. The acting, the story, were very realistic, really quite stunning, the whole job you did. Genuine and accurate. But again, the details that are so important, authentically real in every aspect. As a specialist, I found it enlightening and even uplifting, watching your characters. As a film buff, I think it stands on its own as a finely honed story that is therefore able to get across the anxiety of these lives.”

I was fortunate to attend the presentation of You Are Here last week at Huntington Hospital. Your production was quite moving and certainly informative. Congratulations! As a former caregiver to my father who was a Parkinson's patient and incapacitated over time with dementia, your movie presented a very real display of all the anxieties, frustrations and emotions related to this disease and of course
to those caring for their loved ones. Thank you for your message

"So there are days and the Alzheimer's Association that I get lost in the mundane day to day things that have to get done. Seeing this movie solidifies the real reason I'm there, why the mundane things count, that everything we do each day is necessary. That above all, our passion is foremost, and we can make a difference.
We must help in this war. I am honestly blessed to be a part of this journey, even during 12 hour days. Because all of the truly matters. You don't know what this film did for me. Thank you so much!”

“I wanted to say thanks for making the movie. I believe that it does make people think a lot more. I was really intrigued by the husband, especially, and how he struggles as best he can with his wife’s problem, without knowing what to do.”
