My short film is named Forgotten and aims to establish and develop a single character. My film is a hybrid genre of a social realism and experimental/art house and follows an eighty year old man struggling with the reality of living with Alzheimer’s disease. My film follows the protagonist’s day to day life, highlighting the isolation and confusion that both he and the people around him feel, as a consequence of living with this disease. Within the film, the protagonist is given a photograph of his younger self which he initially does not remember, however, later within the film these memories return to him, which is symbolised through the representation of a younger version of his character. Throughout the film, we see a repetition of memories which is evident within the cyclical narrative of the film and the jump cuts between scenes represents both the characters confusion and the loss of time.
