A soulful and stirring film that maps a twilight world of loss and change, E.gress explores how individuals diagnosed with dementia find new ways to adjust to a changing world. Produced by artist Marie Brett and musician Kevin O’Shanahan following an intensive collaboration with the Alzheimer Society of Ireland, the film is currently touring Ireland supported by an Arts Council Touring Award and will be exhibited at The Model, Sligo from 3 March – 28 April 2016.
