Wine, Women, and Dementia

Release Date: 6/12/2024

Runtime: 1hr 15

The world is grappling with a crisis as the baby boomer generation ages into dementia.  The United States is no exception, with an estimated nine million Americans projected to be living with dementia by 2030.

In light of this, Wine, Women, & Dementia provides a poignant and intimate look into the human side of dementia. This film follows the journey of former dementia family caregiver and filmmaker, Kitty Norton, as she embarks on a cross-country RV adventure with her best friend, Beth Rigazio, to meet the dementia family caregivers who provided virtual friendship and encouragement through their shared caregiver experiences. Through these face-to-face encounters, Norton seeks to deepen her understanding of the caregiving experience, and highlight the vital support that caregivers provide to one another, despite the physical distance between them.

The caregivers, meeting in person for the first time, share intimate, humorous, heartfelt stories, told in formal interviews and backyard “wine chats.” These stories provide a vivid picture of dementia life - from diagnosis to death, heartbreak to hilarity, and are interwoven with the physical journey of Norton and Rigazio’s often comical cross-country roadtrip, as well as Norton’s personal caregiver journey told through family interviews, archival footage, and home movies. 

Wine, Women, and Dementia explores the themes of perseverance, familial devotion, and most importantly how to celebrate life on a long, long road to death.
