I Remember Better When I Paint, a film by Eric Ellena and Berna Huebner screens at the Metropolitan Museum in New York on the afternoon of Wednesday, May 29, 2013.
I Remember Better When I Paint, narrated by Olivia de Havilland, is first international documentary about the positive impact of art and other creative therapies on people with Alzheimer’s and how these approaches can change the way we look at the disease.

Following the screening, filmmaker Berna Huebner will be joined by Dr. Sam Gandy, Chair of the Mount Sinai Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center, and Gail Sheehy, bestselling author of Passages in Caregiving: Turning Chaos into Confidence, for a lively discussion moderated by Carolyn Halpin-Healy, Founder and Executive Director of Arts & Minds.
