After they realised the stigma of neurological disorders and terminal illnesses perpetuates a culture of fear and ignorance, Jeremy Boo and Lee Xian Jie spent more than a year observing the lives of two women and their families’ struggle with dementia and depression.

Short synopsis: Even as Joyce Fernandez devotes her life to care for her mother, Celine, who suffers from Alzheimerʼs Disease, she fights her fears with faith when her motherʼs health worsens rapidly. Meanwhile, Dr Irene Giam, who describes herself as an atheist who does not fear death, struggles to restrain her emotions in a relentless march with vascular dementia. Intimate and unflinchingly honest, Before We Forget is a film of two women with dementia who live in an Asian society where terminal illnesses and dying remain taboo.
