Isabella by Ross Hogg and Duncan Cowles

A 92-year-old woman struggles to remember. Then, her past is explored and brought to life.

What’s the most interesting thing you can say to someone? For 92-year-old Isabella, who suffers from dementia and Parkinson’s, it’s the story of her bully as a child.

She struggles to remember, but she vividly recalls the bully tapping her on the shoulder every time she passed by. The bully would usually add some cheeky remark, laugh and then walk away.

Isabella was annoyed and her bully knew it.

One day, Isabella had enough and grabbed the bully by the shoulders and shook her, bumping the bully’s head against the wall behind.

As Isabella’s memory begins to falter, her grandson, filmmaker Ross Hogg, along with Duncan Cowles, recorded her to explore, question and bring her past to life. It’s a heartbreaking look at the devastating effects of memory loss.

How much of your life do you need to remember to remain yourself?
