Summary, etc.:
A highly charged journey across the landscape of aging. This film travels from coast to coast exploring the unprecedented highs and the prolonged lows of growing old. From burlesque dancers in their seventies to geriatric prison wards, this film takes us to the extreme ends of longevity while asking 'What is a good old age?' This film and its companion book were created by the internationally-acclaimed team of writer Julie Winokur and photographer Ed Kashi. Over the course of seven years, they traveled across the country, collecting scores of personal histories that when taken collectively challenge the culture of aging in America..."Thoughtful and visually arresting worḱŒÍve been so impressed and moved by your deft way of representing a great diversity of experiences of aging.́.Beth Dungen - Curator, Berkeley Art Museum.."StirrinǵŒAging in America brings to the forefront ́ without stereotypes or sentimentality ́ the realities of getting old."- San Jose Mercury News.
