Media Release: Love, Loss & Laughter – Living with Dementia

Corinne Maunder, Producer, Fire Films, said the Love, Loss and Laughter exhibition presented an ideal opportunity to create a meaningful piece about dementia.

As an entry in the inaugural Reel Health International Health Short Film Festival, the film explores the messages behind the photos that are currently on a six month tour in Australia.

“While making the film I learnt that even though dementia is a condition that people live with, it doesn’t mean a person should be isolated from the everyday activities that they can still enjoy in so many ways. The project made me appreciate even more, the time that I have with my grandmother and my mother and aunt’s unswerving dedication as carers,” Ms Maunder said.
