Albert Alcalay: Self Portraits

May 13, 2008

Albert Alcalay is a ninety year old artist who learned to paint in a German concentration camp. His dramatic life story as a Serbian Jew persecuted during World War II and his development as an artist and Harvard professor provide the background for this lively examination of how human memory and emotion become reflected in abstract art. Produced by Rob Eustis, Allen Moore and Rob Tranchin.
