Please join us on Sunday May 6, 2018 at the Art Gallery of Alberta as we screen the Award Winning documentary ‘Genius of Marian’.

An afternoon reception will commence at 1:00 PM, with the complimentary screening beginning at 2:00 PM. The screening will be hosted in the Art Gallery’s Ledcor Theatre.

About the film: “The Heartbreak Of Alzheimer’s, The Power Of Art, And The Meaning Of Family”

The Genius of Marian is a visually rich, emotionally complex story about one family’s struggle to come to terms with the changes Alzheimer’s disease brings. After Pam White is diagnosed at age 61 with early onset Alzheimer’s, life begins to change, slowly but irrevocably, for Pam and everyone around her. Pam’s husband grapples with his changing role from primary partner to primary caregiver. Her adult children find ways to show their love and support while mourning the slow loss of their mother.
