Esther Helfgott - Portrait

Documenting with Care – Esther Altshul Helfgott

Poignant and painful, Esther Altshul Helfgott documents the Alzheimer’s experience through poetry. Her writing fragments play a somber melody, both moving and beautiful. While her Jack Straw project focuses on illness, her writing covers a broad range of subject matter, with a penchant for history.

Music by Tamara Friedman, produced as part of the Jack Straw Artist Support Program.
