"Sensitive, intimate and moving."

- Dr. Norah Keating, Chair, North American Region, International Association of Gerontology and Geriatrics
 
Our older seniors - those aged 80 and over - have become the fastest-growing segment of the world's population and yet their voices are rarely heard. The Elder Project follows seven diverse seniors over two years, recording their experiences for a series of short and candid episodic stories. Extending beyond a discussion of the limitations of age and disease, the film provides intimate insight into the lives of older adults.
