The documentary I Remember Better When I Paint offers new insights into the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease through creative arts. In the film, leading international neurologists illustrate how the parts of the brain related to emotions and creativity are largely spared by the disease, and therefore dramatically changing the way we look at Alzheimer’s and related disorders.

The documentary is narrated by Olivia de Havilland and features Yasmin Aga Khan, president of Alzheimer’s Disease International and daughter of Rita Hayworth, who had Alzheimer’s. It tells the compelling story of Hilda Gorenstein, an artist known as Hilgos, who was left lost, agitated and uncommunicative by Alzheimer’s disease. She regained a quality of life by returning to painting with the help of students from School of Art Institute of Chicago.

I Remember Better When I Paint is a documentary by Eric Ellena and Berna Huebner, presented by French Connection Films and the Hilgos Foundation.

The Hilgos Foundation awards scholarships to students who help those suffering from memory loss, acknowledging and celebrating the astonishing impact of the arts on people with Alzheimer’s.
