Glassy-Eyed (26 min)
Frederic Compain, Director

Bill Utermohlen (1933-2007) was an American artist living in England, creating his figurative art despite the era of abstract art. In 1995 he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, a diagnosis that changed both his life and his art. His final body of work is both an artistic achievement and a pictorial narrative of the illness.

I Remember Better when I Paint (45 min)
Eric Ellena and Berna Huebner, Directors (France & U.S.)

Narrated by actress Olivia de Havilland, the film presents the positive impact of creative therapy on people with Alzheimer’s disease, engaging areas of the brain that are not damaged by the disease. Noted clinicians are featured, as well as an interview with Yasmin Aga Khan, president of Alzheimer’s Disease International whose mother, actress Rita Hayworth, suffered from early onset Alzheimer’s. Director Huebner highlights her mother’s transformation.

    This seems like a really worthwhile event. We have a special Alzheimer’s CARE program, and this movie sounds very interesting & pertinent. Thanks for sharing!
