New Short Film Gives Firsthand Perspective of the FTD Journey
VJ & Chuck, a powerful new short film by Joseph Becker and ThinkFilm, Inc., captures FTD’s impact from the perspective of the person diagnosed. The film focuses on VJ and Chuck Anastasia, a married couple living in Rhode Island. In 2013, VJ was diagnosed with FTD, a form of dementia that primarily affects movement, behavior, personality and language. The changes brought on by FTD have forced VJ and Chuck to restructure their entire lives. But through good days and bad, they are able to draw strength from their decades-long bond.
