At Articine, we’re excited to bring our mission of integrating the arts and medicine to life with our production of Dottiea short film about dementia and empathy.

This film is specifically designed as a professional development tool for healthcare professionals. "Dottie" is a powerful narrative that facilitates a deeper and more intimate understanding of how dementia impacts patients and their caregivers. Through researched storytelling and visually compelling scenes, the film demonstrates the challenging nuances of dementia's grasp on the aging mind and body while also honoring the beauty of personhood. 

With a world-class cast, crew and production team (Berklee College Music, Boston Conservatory, Budapest Scoring Orchestra, Netflix, Amazon Prime), Dottie is sure to be a healthcare training session that will leave a lasting impression.
