Hospice Alliance and Alzheimer’s Association will co-sponsor this award-winning 50 minute international documentary narrated by Olivia de Havilland.
It highlights the positive impact of art and other creative therapies on people with memory impairment, helping to reawaken a sense of personality, identity and dignity. Among those who are featured in the film are acclaimed neurologists and Yasmin Aga Khan, president of Alzheimer’s Disease International and daughter of Rita Hayworth, who had Alzheimer’s. It also tells the story of Hilda Gorenstein, an accomplished painter, who in later years suffered from dementia.
A panel discussion will follow the film. Panelists include the film’s co-director and Hilda’s daughter, Berna Huebner, Hospice Alliance Dance/Movement Therapist Kamahria Hopkins and Alzheimer's Association Executive DirectorTom Hlavacek.
