The Lives of Therese + Alzheimers: A Love Story

The Lives of Therese + Alzheimers: A Love Story


A tender and inspiring portrait of Thérèse Clerc, one of France’s fiercest activists during the last months of her life. Thérèse evolved from a subdued French housewife in the 50s to a feminist activist who fought for abortion and gay rights. Her four children all claim to have had ‘a different mother’, depending on what phase Thérèse was experiencing at the time. Confronted by the final stages of terminal illness she asks us to witness that which is so rarely talked about: ageing and death. The film will be screened alongside the UK premiere of the touching documentary short Alzheimer’s: A Love Story.
