The Vanishing Mind: another piece of awesome from the New York Times

If you’re serious about making good multimedia you should really make it your business to spend 15 minutes on the New York Times‘ website every morning. And the Washington Post too for that matter.

Such serendipity led me to stumble upon this superb and powerful story about an entire community of people in Columbia affected by alzheimers as young as 40. Anyone with the same lineage in this small community has a 75% chance of contracting the disease.

The film combines video with stills and audio skillfully. You’re sucked in as soon as the music kicks in at the beginning.
