Her adult children each find ways to show their love and support while mourning the slow loss of their mother.

Press

  • FIlmmaker Magazine
    White documents his mother’s attempt to remember and save the memories of his grandmother in compellingly intimate footage.
  • JustPressPlay
    The Genius of Marian is more than a documentary about Alzheimer’s disease. This film is a tribute to the genius of Pam and the genius of Marian, a love letter from a son to his mother, and surely Pam’s story will not soon be forgotten.
  • Washingtonian
    Filmmaker Banker White captures both his family’s battle with Alzheimer’s Disease and his mother’s unique spirit.
  • The Huffington Post
    The Genius of Marian is an intimate, poetic documentary about Pam White and her family as they all struggle to deal with Pam’s Alzheimer’s disease.
  • IndieWire
    It’s a remarkable film, not only for the obvious affection with which it was made, but as art. The downward trajectory of a woman in the grip of ever-worsening dementia provides only so many opportunities for visual storytelling.
