Course Description:

Stereotypical misrepresentations of aging individuals pervade the American media, with a surfeit of cringeworthy comedic “senior heist” movies and maudlin melodramas. This revealing series will challenge the status quo with four thought-provoking and discussion-worthy movies that aspire to lead us toward a more realistic and inspirational portrait of aging and maturity, beautifully rendered on film. Films will include 23 Walks (2020); The Father (2020); Love is Strange (2014); and, Aquarius (2016). Participants are to independently view each film prior to the Zoom session.


Tuition: $30.00
