The Oxford Philippines Society is proud to host the British premiere of “An Elegy to Forgetting,” a documentary by multi-award-winning writer and director Kristoffer Brugada. Kristoffer has led the production of several documentaries that have won prestigious awards, such as the George Foster Peabody Award, the New York Festivals, Japan Prize for TV, and the Asian TV Awards.

"The documentary follows the journey of the filmmaker’s parents Pedring and Pining Brugada and presents how they cope with Pedring’s worsening condition under Alzheimer’s Disease. Taken from the filmmaker’s personal perspective, the documentary looks at how such crippling diseases gravely affects relationships between couples and family members, and yet at the same time, strengthens the bond between the patient and the caregivers."
