Women make up two thirds of the people living with dementia in the UK and a huge proportion of carers looking after those living with dementia, yet policy making doesn’t recognise and value them. Nada Savitch speaks to women affected by dementia and calls on young women to change their futures.
Sophie Mayer talks to Elisabeth Subrin, director of Shulie, a 1997 shot-for-shot remake of 1967 documentary about Shulamith Firestone during her time as an art student.
The image is from D H Kelly’s review of Louis Theroux’s recent documentary on transgender children. It shows Crystal/Cole (left, foreground) and Louis Theroux (right, background) in an outdoor scene, with a white house in the background, at dusk. Crystal Cole wears a loose yellow top, blue jeans and white furry boots and is jumping on a pogo stick, while Louis is wearing a navy jumper, navy trousers and brown lace-up boots and stands with his hands in his pockets, his weight somewhat on his right leg and with his left foot forward. Both are smiling casually. Image Credit: BBC/Freddie Claire. Shared under fair dealing.
