No one is ever ready to lose a loved one, especially to a disease that dims the bonds of the past. Through the Haynes family, we explore what it means to love someone present in the body, yet absent in the mind, and how the spirit can transcend all boundaries.

Eboni Johnson believes in the power of visual media to connect and educate a diverse audience. She uses her video journalism and broadcasting experience to give voice to communities of color and tell their stories of inequality, equability, and the intersectionality of identity and self-actualization. Her time as Cambridge Community Television’s production intern and the anchor and producer for the African-American Aggie vlog, Black Script, has molded her into an expert editor, interviewer, scriptwriter, and producer. A first year MFA student at the University of North Texas, her debut film Songs Remembered evaluates the universal epidemic of Alzheimer’s and dementia.
