Hallucination video available to watch until midnight UK time

Not sure if this will help many people but for those who didn’t manage to see this afternoons showing of ‘Hallucination’ by the wonderful Suki Chan, Suki has allowed me to share the video until midnight tonight, UK time, after which it will disappear from view….

We had a wonderful event this afternoon spoilt by the Hackers that cam in at the end and abruptly finished the session.

it was lovely to be on screen with Suki again.

anyway I hope some of you get a chance to watch it during the few hours it’s available ….

About wendy7713

On the 31st July 2014 I was diagnosed with Young Onset Dementia. I may not have much of a short term memory anymore but that date is one I’ll never forget. I’m 58 years young, live happily alone in Yorkshire, have 2 daughters and I’m currently still in full time employment in the NHS. However, I’m now in the process of taking early retirement to give me a chance of enjoying life while I’m still me. I've started this blog to allow me, in the first instance, to write all my thoughts before they’re lost. If anyone chooses to follow my ramblings it will serve as a way of raising awareness on the lack of research into Alzheimer's. It will hopefully convey the helplessness of those diagnosed with dementia, as there is no cure – the end is inevitable. However, I’m also hoping I can convey that, although we've been diagnosed, people like me still have a substantial contribution to make; we still have a sense of humour; we sill have feelings. I’m hoping to show the reality of trying to cope on a day to day basis with the ever-changing environment that dementia throws at those diagnosed with the condition. What I want is not sympathy. What I want is simply to raise awareness.

  2. I wasn’t able to join the zoom session despite having a ticket ( long story ) so the hackers did me a favour and i was able to watch the moving film – well mostly , it played up towards the end. So thank you for making it available , I was so sorry to miss the zoom but very lucky to get a 2nd chance. Annoying for everyone though that it had to be cut short.

  3. Hi Wendy, I was lucky enough to view Hallucinations this afternoon. I found it very insightful and moving (although so cross that the end was spoilt by hackers). You were extremely articulate and honest – Thankyou for letting us be part of this. You are an inspiration Wendy and Suki conveyed this though her art.

  4. I’m sorry I didn’t check my email after the hack to learn that the discussion was continuing. I sat there reviewing the film and discussion in my mind, determined to remember the positive, just like you, Wendy, mention in the film. It’s important to stand up to bullies and abusers who have no empathy or heart ❤️. Barbara

  5. Thanks for following up. I think everyone with tickets received a Vimeo link from the organizers to watch after the hack.. That worked for me. Very nicely done! I also got an email that the post-show discussion was recorded and will be posted soon. Cheers, Wendy!

  6. Well done and thank you Wendy and Suki for an interesting and insightful film. I was saddened that our discussion at the end was so rudely interrupted by hackers. But being inspired by your optimism Wendy, out of it came the opportunity to have a second viewing 👍. I enjoyed the second viewing even more than the first because I was concentrating more on each film side by side. The one on the right being that of the carer and the one on the left the person living with dementia. Initially, I was listening to the music and the various subjects in each film clip but I didn’t relate them to the two perspectives. Or at least not as much as I did second time around. It was excellent. 👏👏👏👏

  7. I participated in the showing of `Hallucinations’ and it was very informative.
    Unfortunately it was interrupted by people who have nothing better to do.
    I have attended many zoom meetings and the host has always been able to oust people who are uninvited and disruptive/rude.
    Unfortunately I did not see the email to re-join until 5.20pm and only saw the email to watch the film after 12 midnight.
    I am sorry that Wendy Mitchell was upset by this unwanted interruption.
    Remove unwanted or disruptive participants: You can remove someone from your meeting by using the Security Icon or Participants menu. On the Participants menu, you can mouse over a participant’s name and several options will appear, including Remove. Click that to kick someone out of the meeting.

  8. Good morning Wendy – I initially missed this posting yesterday, as I had given up in frustration. However, this morning I noticed a link New Hall Art Collections and was able to view that truly uplifting creation. Thank you to you and all the others in contributed in making something that has helped to extend my understanding of dementia as you live it. I must say I am truly humbled – thank you and I hope you are having a good day today. 🙂 x

  9. Wendy, This was a wonderful collaboration with Pegeen and Suki, a remarkably profound film and truly beautiful music. I watched it 4 times and it just got better and better! And I know that several more of your friends in Burley-in-Wharfedale tuned in too. Thank you so much for your contribution, both in the film and during the discussion. It was lovely to see you again and to hear your voice. Brilliant!
    (I can imagine that you would have had strong words for those thoughtless hackers!)
