The Jewish Federation of the Berkshires will screen the documentary ALIVE INSIDE, a joyous cinematic exploration of music's capacity to reawaken our souls and uncover the deepest parts of our humanity. Filmmaker Michael Rossato-Bennett chronicles the astonishing experiences of individuals around the country who have been revitalized through the simple experience of listening to music.  This stirring documentary follows social worker Dan Cohen, founder of the non-profit organization Music & Memory, as he fights against a broken healthcare system to demonstrate music's ability to combat memory loss and restore a deep sense of self to those suffering from it.  An uplifting cinematic exploration of music and the mind.  Winner of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival Audience Award.  Cost $3.
