Empathy, the sharing of the pain and the joy of another human being is the core power of Documentary Film-making.
"Alive Inside" changed the world for many elders, but the film's questions still remain- How were so many of our elders forgotten? Can we reconnect them to life?
To answer these questions, to teach the themes of the film and inspire action, we created The Alive Inside Foundation. To support this teaching we have created Educational Materials, "The Alive Inside APP," Mp3 All-in-One Headphones and Community outreach assets, all aimed at inspiring a generation of young people to explore empathy and elderhood through music. We bring this educational challenge to Schools, Universities, and places of worship.

ALIVE INSIDE is a joyous cinematic exploration of music’s capacity to reawaken our souls and uncover the deepest parts of our humanity. Filmmaker Michael Rossato-Bennett chronicles the astonishing experiences of individuals around the country who have been revitalized through the simple experience of listening to music. His camera reveals the uniquely human connection we find in music and how its healing power can triumph where prescription medication falls short.
This stirring documentary follows social worker Dan Cohen, founder of the nonprofit organization Music & Memory, as he fights against a broken healthcare system to demonstrate music’s ability to combat memory loss and restore a deep sense of self to those suffering from it. Rossato-Bennett visits family members who have witnessed the miraculous effects of personalized music on their loved ones, and offers illuminating interviews with experts including renowned neurologist and best-selling author Oliver Sacks (Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain) and musician Bobby McFerrin (“Don’t Worry, Be Happy”). An uplifting cinematic exploration of music and the mind, ALIVE INSIDE’s inspirational and emotional story left audiences humming, clapping and cheering at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Audience Award.
