Nia Pericles reflects on the pain and joy of making a film about her mother's dementia. The film has been quietly gripping audiences on ABC iView.

Dementia is one of the great, heart-tearing fears of our lives. It may take our own minds, and we could well see our parents and lovers stolen away and degraded.

Here is her account of the experience.
