The Withering is a eight minute life action short film depicting the impact of Alzheimer’s disease on people, using a documentary-like format to present each symptom and deterioration of the condition. The film seeks to mirror real life, and reflect the real plights of Alzheimer’s patients. The story revolves around a series of 10 objects, each representing a symptom of Alzheimer’s. The gradual disappearance of the 10 objects symbolises the progress of Alzheimer’s and the slow perish of the protagonist’s sanity, until he ultimately cannot remember or recognise himself.
