Tomorrow, October 1st, is the International Day of Older Persons. As a celebration of the International Day of Older Persons, the National Film Board of Canada (Toronto, Ontario) invites you to see the “The Elder Project” film for free in the NFB Cinema of the NFB Mediatheque.
Dr. Norah Keating, Chair, North American Region, International Association of Gerontology and Geriatrics, called The Elder Project film “Sensitive, intimate and moving.” The Elder Project portrays seven diverse seniors, recording over two years their experiences for a series of short and candid episodic stories.
The Elder Project provides an opportunity for older persons of ages 80 and over to have their voices heard on such issues as limitations of age and disease.
Also, you will gain an intimate insight into the lives of older adults in The Elder Project which is then followed by a panel discussion.
Here is The Elder Project info:
