Michael Horvich introduces and discusses his 16-minute film, Alzheimer’s: A Love Story, a moving short documentary on the power of love through all obstacles, which beautifully captures one couple's struggle with a disease that indiscriminately impacts millions of elders.

Alzheimer's: A Love Story has screened at over 90 film festivals locally, nationally, and internationally and won over 35+ audience and juried awards, including both the Best Short Film and Best LGBTQ Film at Cannes.

Those diagnosed with Dementia/Alzheimer’s live an average of seven years after their symptoms first become noticeable. It has been eleven years for Greg, who after living at home for ten of those years now lives in a memory care facility in Chicago.

Every day, his husband Michael; a kind, earnest and resilient man who looks like Santa Claus and approaches the disease with the practicality of a retired educator (which he is); visits the love of his life and fights to preserve the memory of their 41 years together.
