I Remember Better When I Paint

This is a beautiful story of how a woman remembered a comment her mother made and then persisted in following through on a hunch. Berna Huebner collaborated with doctors and art students to reintroduce painting back into her mother’s life. The documentary shows how painting can help people access parts of their memory that are otherwise inactive, when afflicted by cognitive impairment such as Alzheimer’s Disease. Check out a review of the documentary and see the blog for information of viewings.
