There is a new epidemic upon us. It doesn’t matter where you live in the world today, what language you speak, or how old you are. Chances are, you’ve either heard of Alzheimer’s or have been unfortunately touched by this crippling disease of the mind. After our own experiences over the last decade, we set out to create an ambitious story project, that we hope might help expedite a cure. The Carpe Kilimanjaro project is a feature-length documentary, website, and mobile experience. The entire project sets out to address the three main challenges facing the Alzheimer’s community:
- Remove the stigma
- Raise more money for research
- Get more people into clinical trials.
Over the next few months, we’ll be finishing up post-production on the film, building up interest on our social media and traditional PR campaign, and submitting to major film festivals around the world. We will also be holding private screenings and forming partnerships with like-minded organizations. It certainly takes a village, which is why we are reaching out to you and everyone we know, in the hopes you might feel compelled to help. So if you’re moved by the power of story, please head on over to the project website and let us know how you would like to get involved.
