The Eternal Memory – Watch the trailer for the new documentary about a couple living with Alzheimer’s disease

The Eternal Memory is a 2023 Chilean documentary film directed by Maite Alberdi.

Augusto Góngora and Paulina Urrutia have been a couple for 23 years. Augusto is one of Chile’s most prominent cultural journalists and television presenters. His wife, Paulina, affectionately called “Pauli,” is an actress who served as Minister of Culture and the Arts of the country from 2006 to 2010. Eight years ago, Augusto was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, and since then, Paulina has been caring for him. Throughout his career, Augusto was dedicated to ensuring that the atrocities of the Pinochet dictatorship are not forgotten. Today, it is up to him and his wife to maintain his identity despite the challenges of his illness. Each day, the couple faces the difficulties caused by Alzheimer’s disease, but they also maintain the tenderness and sense of humor that binds them together.

The film was selected in the World Cinema Dramatic Competition at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival where it had its world premiere on 21 January 2023 and won the Grand Jury Prize.
