About the event
Please join us for an exclusive screening of Ticketyboo on World Alzhimer's Day.
Ticketyboo is a deeply moving, heartfelt and personal exploration of dementia. Journalist Renee Brack investigates her
father’s experience of the illness and her own fraught and complicated response to it, alongside the implications it may hold for her future.
Dementia effects half a million people in Australia and it is estimated that 1.6 million people are involved in the care of someone living with dementia. It is the second cause of death for Australians, just behind heart disease; and it is the leading cause of death in Australian women.
Across the world, 44 million people live with dementia. Hundreds of millions of people are affected by the dementia of parents, partners, siblings or friends. And as much of the world confronts the complexities of ageing populations, dementia will become an inescapable challenge for societies, families and individuals. This is an illness that will touch all of us in some way.
Ticketyboo is an important film, fearless in its confrontation with a topic shrouded in fear and myth, and ultimately hopeful about how we can connect and support each other as we move towards a more compassionate understanding of this cruel illness. Renee’s very personal story invites us to consider how we could best support a loved one diagnosed with dementia, and how we can plan for our final years.
We invite all attendees to stay after the film for a short discussion about the documentary and complimentary wine and light supper.
