A film by Paul Kane
Funded by The Arts Council of Northern Ireland in partnership with the Belfast Social and Health Care Trust, ‘Windmills’ is a film project based on how we interpret memory, working with people with a diagnosis of dementia. The film, which took a year to produce, focused on a range of music based activities, participation and interviews and was scored with original electronic music written especially for the film.
The short film aimed to challenge how we view people with
dementia and how music can be a powerful tool to unlock memories and create dialogue.
The original score distilled the elements used in the myriad of songs that were used in many of the workshops including 85 BPM, 2/4 time signature, melody and repetitive hooks.
The film has a strong impact, showing how music weaves its way throughout our lives and how its legacy is always with us.
Paul was awarded ACNI Funding in 2016/17 through the ACES programme which helped fund the creation of 'Windmills'.
