Now and Again: A Documentary on Finding Lost Memory

Follow the production of our new feature film here

Now and Again Drawing

In 1945, two depression-era teenagers from Brooklyn, George and Mel, rode their bikes to Philadelphia for an adventure they’d remember for the rest of their lives—until Mel lost his memory to Alzheimer’s. Now over seventy years later, his grandsons in their early twenties, Alex and Koby, are traveling the same 100-mile bike ride journey on their own, to explore legacy of their grandfather. The brothers are searching for places aged by time, from the photographs their grandfather took on his old bike ride. Their mission is to recreate these photographs and find out how these places have changed since.Throughout the film, as we follow the bike ride adventure, we cut away to other moments during the year leading up to the ride. Alex meets with family members and his grandfather’s lifelong friend to piece together the life of a man who can no longer remember it. Interviews with their grandma and mother, blend with family footage from 1950s film reels to 1990s videocassettes, telling the story of three generations of love, conflict, and life.

  3. Saw “Resistance” at the SIFF in Saratoga Springs yesterday (9/17). Was impressed by both the content and the technical quality of the film (although it would have benefited from a steadicam!). The way the filmed elements were edited together to create a coherent and compelling narrative was very professional. I also very much enjoyed the original music, which fit neatly into the narrative of the film and added an important layer of emotional sensibility. I hope this gets out to a wide audience in the US, as well as internationally via RT.

  4. thank you RT for supporting this team. it cannot be found anywhere else. it’s good to have alternative source for the truth.
