About: Human Forever

Teun is 24, very healthy and lives with people with dementia in the closed ward of a nursing home. Why? Teun is now 24, but not all his life…

Now we still listen to what Teun wants, what he feels and what he thinks. Now he is still free to be who he is and to go where he wants, but the chance that this will no longer be the case in the future is 1 in 5. That is why he is now looking for answers for later .

The documentary by filmmaker Jonathan de Jong and Teun Toebes was made independently, with support from the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport, ActiZ, PGGM, Zorgverzekeraars Nederland, Alzheimer Nederland, Vilans and V&VN.

The documentary premiered on October 2 at a G20 summit on dementia. In addition, the Dutch premiere took place in the Royal Theater Tuschinski on October 9. The documentary has now traveled the world and has won awards at international film festivals:
