Research has shown that the majority of Americans believe that Alzheimer’s is a disease that affects senior citizens exclusively. About 5 percent of Americans who develop Alzheimer’s start experiencing symptoms before the age of 65, some as young as 30-40. This is 200,000 people afflicted, and millions affected by a disease that most overlook and misdiagnose until it is too late. A film in the pre-production phases by Arizona Production Company, Hungry Coyote Entertainment plans to shed light on the truth behind this devastating disease.
FADED FLOWERS is a feature film in Pre Production that is the first major motion picture to highlight Early Onset Alzheimer’s. With perennial star, Rosanna Arquette already attached to the project via Letter of Intent, and a handful of yet to be named celebrities in the negotiation phases, the film’s potential to shed awareness on this elusive illness is staggering at the very least.
