The Eternal Memory

In a story that rivals some of cinema’s most epic love stories, we meet Augusto and Paulina, who, having shared their lives for 25 years, must now confront Augusto’s diagnosis with Alzheimer’s disease.

Augusto and Paulina have been together and in love for 25 years. Eight years ago, he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, and his wife has since become his caretaker. As one of Chile's most prominent cultural commentators and television presenters, Augusto is no stranger to building an archive of memory, having been responsible for that herculean task following the Pinochet dictatorship and its systematic erasure of collective consciousness. Now he turns that work to his own life, trying to hold on to his identity with the help of his beloved. Day by day, the couple face this challenge head-on, adapting to the disruptions brought on by the taxing disease while relying on the tender affection and sense of humor shared between them that remains intact.

"Maite Alberdi’s “The Eternal Memory” treats inexorably sad material with a lighter, more lyrical approach than most — focusing less on the day-to-day ravages of living with Alzheimer’s than on the slippery, transient concept of memory itself, as formed, held and lost both in the individual mind and a wider collective consciousness." -Variety

The Eternal Memory was selected in the World Cinema Dramatic Competition at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival where it had its world premiere and won the Grand Jury Prize.
