The award-winning documentary, “I’ll Be Me,” about country music star Glen Campbell’s final tour after his diagnosis with Alzheimer’s, will be shown at Gallagher Bluedorn Performing Arts Center on Tuesday, September 15, and his wife will take audience questions after the film.
Kim Campbell’s appearance and the film screening are part of a free community event organized by dementia support agencies and service providers in the Cedar Valley.
“We want people to be inspired, find hope and realize that life doesn’t end when dementia begins,” explains Jodie Muller of North Star Community Services, the organizer and a presenting sponsor. “Our community needs to know there is help and support available for people with dementia and their families.”
A pre-show event in the Gallagher Bluedorn lobby from 5 -7 PM offers people the opportunity to learn more about dementia and the wide array of services available in the Cedar Valley. The film begins at 7 PM.
“This documentary is heartbreaking and uplifting at the same time,” says Linda Bowman, chief communications officer at Western Home Communities. “You cry and laugh at the honest, raw portrayal of one family’s struggle to move forward after a dementia diagnosis. Plus, it’s filled with Glen’s music from his heyday and during the final tour.”
The event is free but tickets should be reserved through the Gallagher Bluedorn box office at (319) 273-SHOW. Additional information is available at the website, illbemecedarvalley.com.
