ABOUT THE FILM
MONSTER IN THE MIND is a visionary and revolutionary documentary by CNN veteran journalist Jean Carper, who uses clips from old horror movies, herself as a guinea pig, and enlightening interviews with the world's top researchers to investigate our most feared disease, Alzheimer's. Her perspective is unique, bold, entertaining, brutally honest, even funny, inspiring, and surprisingly upbeat. It shatters virtually everything we commonly believe about Alzheimer's Disease.
You will never see Alzheimer's the same way after you see MONSTER IN THE MIND.
