Gerda: Dementia Field Notes

Gerda Saunders has a fabulous sense of style. She also has a progressive form of dementia, and lately she’s been asking herself whether all this effort she’s putting into her appearance will be worth it once she can no longer manage it herself.

She documents this and other experiences in what she calls her Field Notes on Dementia. This is the fourth film in our series with Gerda.
