Panel discusses "Lovely, Still" at AARP conference


Beth Kallmyer of the Alzheimer's Association, actor Martin Landau and an unidentified moderator discuss "Lovely, Still" at the AARP Vegas@50+ conference in Las Vegas.

At the AARP Vegas@50+ event in Las Vegas, Alzheimer's Association director of family and information services Beth Kallmyer participated in a panel on the film "Lovely, Still." After watching the film, which features a plotline centered around Alzheimer's, more than 300 audience members were able to ask questions about the disease and recent scientific progress. The panel featured one of the film’s stars, Academy Award®-winning actor Martin Landau.

The film, which also stars Academy Award-winning actress Ellen Burstyn, premiered at the Toronto Film Festival to widespread critical and audience acclaim. "Lovely, Still" is currently being shown in limited release and opens to a wider audience later this fall.
