When you’re here (Als je er bent)
In this film, you can see the strong bond between mother and daughter. The viewer is taken into the lives of Truus and Miep, who both have dementia. What do these women value? The aim of the film is to function as a source of inspiration to continue to see happiness in little things in life and how you can contribute to the happiness of someone with dementia. Leontien Adriaanse experienced dementia up close when her grandmother suffered from dementia. By taking a look at how other families dealt with this difficult disease, she was able to process her own experiences. She hopes their love and warmth will inspire the viewer as it has inspired her. Furthermore, she hopes the film will help to shed more light on how people with dementia experience life and what effect it has on their emotions.
