About the Movie

THE GENIUS OF MARIAN is a visually rich, emotionally complex story that follows Pam White in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease as her son, the filmmaker, documents her struggles to retain her sense of self. After she is diagnosed at age 61 with early-onset Alzheimer’s, life begins to change for Pam and everyone around her. Pam’s husband grapples with his changing role from partner to caregiver. Her adult children each find ways to show their love and support while mourning the slow loss of their mother. And Pam deals with the fear that she will be institutionalized for her disease, as her own mother was before she died of Alzheimer’s in 2001. THE GENIUS OF MARIAN not only chronicles the progress of Pam’s disease, it also serves as a meditation on what we inherit from the generations before us and the role of memory in creating legacy.

The Genius of Marian

Totally enjoyed the video. Very poignant and real.

Genius for sure.

An incredibly poignant view of this disease and its impact on the relationship of husband and wife as well as the entire family. Despite the disease, pieces of her personality and love are evident.


A brilliant and dignifying account of the painful yet courageous experience of alzheimers.
