In this masterwork of a career-long investigation into collective memory, Rea Tajiri shares the camera with her mother, Rose Tajiri Noda, chronicling a sixteen year journey as Rose’s care partner following her diagnosis with dementia. A duet of both care and cinematic creation, WISDOM GONE WILD captures Rose’s daily life while sprawling across time, as Rose’s memories emerge from everyday encounters, songs, dreams, and anxieties.
