You're Looking At Me Like I Live Here And I Don't is the first documentary to be filmed entirely in an Alzheimer's care unit, and also the first told entirely from the perspective of a woman living with Alzheimer's disease. The film received its national television broadcast on PBS' Emmy Award-winning Independent Lens series, and has garnered acclaim from both medical professionals and film critics. In Danville, California, Lee Gorewitz wanders on a personal odyssey through her Alzheimer's & Dementia care unit. From the moment she wakes up, Lee is on a quest - for reminders of her past and of her identity. A total immersion into the fragmented day-to-day experience of mental illness, You're Looking At Me Like I Live Here And I Don't is an Alzheimer's documentary filled with charismatic vitality and penetrating ruminations that challenge our preconceptions of illness and aging. Here is one extraordinary woman who will not let us forget her, even as she struggles to remember herself. Marie Marley from the Huffington Post says "This riveting film grabbed my attention immediately and held it through the final scene. When it ended I felt sad -- not because of the subject matter but because I wanted to spend more time with this unique and endearing woman with whom I'd fallen in love. I missed her, so I turned around and watched the entire movie again." This film was directed and produced by Scott Kirschenbaum.
