About the Event

This award-winning documentary, Please Remember Me, directed by Zhao Qing and produced by Violet Feng, is a love story about Feng and Lou, a Shanghai-based couple facing aging and memory loss.

Eighty-seven-year-old Alzheimer's patient Lou has forgotten everyone but her husband Feng, who has been her only caretaker for the past ten years. Yet after a medical check-up, Feng was diagnosed with a pancreas mass. The man who went through a life of hardship in good spirits finally bursts into tears. Before going to the hospital, he takes Lou out shopping. Does it mean their time of separation is coming near? Can they still live a life with dignity and freedom? On the way home, they walk hand in hand as Lou says, "We are together no matter what."

Pizza will be provided at the event.
