Film explores how creative arts can help Alzheimer’s patients

Narrated by actress Olivia de Havilland, “I Remember Better When I Paint” features personal stories, including that of actress Rita Hayworth, as told by her daughter, Yasmin Aga Khan, who is also president of Alzheimer’s Disease International. Also included are interviews with neurologists who explain how creative activities engage undamaged areas of the brain and reawaken a sense of personality, identity and dignity.

Described as “Powerful beyond words” by journalist and Pulitzer Prize finalist Richard Reeves, “I Remember Better When I Paint” was filmed in North America and Europe and shows Alzheimer’s patients focusing and reconnecting as they paint and visit artistic venues such as the Louvre in Paris, the Art Institute of Chicago and New York City’s Big Apple Circus.
