What if There was a Cure for Alzheimer's? Words To Remember A Film By Pasquale Marco Veltri
March 05, 2013 Entertainment News(PRLEAP.COM) Toronto, ON (March 5, 2013) When there is a cure for Alzheimer's, what will recovering patients tell their friends and family after so many years of silence? Pasquale Marco Veltri's latest short film Words to Remember examines the answer to that question.
In many ways Words to Remember is a science fiction film about the potential near future and how Alzheimer's can interrupt the passing down of wisdom from one generation to the next. What will it be like when there is a cure for Alzheimer's? What will recovering patients have to tell us after so many years of silence? What memories are in the minds of Alzheimer sufferers? Words to Remember envisions the desperate words of wisdom from an Alzheimer's patient that could be potentially passed down to friends and family members. To connect to various ethnicities, Words to Remember is told in four languages to better represent the multicultural aspects of the world and to highlight the fact that wisdom comes in all languages.

"Words to Remember is a film project and concept I have been working on for sometime now. I wanted to give a voice to a topic that many people do not discuss or think about on a day-to-day base. I wanted the film to resonate with people who have family members suffering from Alzheimer's but also people who don't. I think we accomplished that effort within this short," says Pasquale Marco Veltri's.
Written and directed by Pasquale Marco Veltri, Words to Remember stars, Naimesh Nanavaty, Virginia O'Hara, Michael Mcleister, Jasmine Sawant and Candi Zell. Veltri's film is a continuation of his overall theatrical theme of trajectory of reflection, self-identification and his overall passion to understand the human condition. With an original score by composer Vikas Kohli, the music draws inspiration from the multicultural aspects of the film and fuses a classical string quartet with a traditional Indian bowed instrument known as the Taus.
