Aging in America: The Years Ahead

In search of what it means to have a 'good old age', Julie Winokur and Ed Kashi traveled across the country for seven years, collecting scores of personal histories to depict the experience of aging in America. This film traverses the experience of our elders from the wellderly to the elderly, as told through a series of intimate vignettes of people who are living the new old age. Through their stories, we laugh and cry as they celebrate their freedom, apply their wisdom, and suffer the consequences of their bodies' limitations. A film by Julie Winokur and Katie Buono. c2003. 57 min.
