Lives Well Lived
Forty people aged 75 to 100, with a collective life experience of 3000 years, share their secrets, wit, and wisdom on how to live a meaningful life.
Through their intimate memories and inspiring personal histories, these men and women open the vault on their journey into old age through family histories, personal triumph and tragedies, loves and losses – seeing the best and worst of humanity along the way.
The film captures the images, ideas and ideals of those who are proving that aging is something to cherish, that retirement doesn’t mean you retire from life, and that growing older doesn’t mean growing silent. These are the people teaching a growing population of men and women how to age with dignity, grace, energy and purpose.
Their stories will make you laugh, perhaps cry, but mostly inspire you.
"Heartwarming lessons in how to grow old gracefully."
"Sky Bergman set out to collect wit, wisdom and life stories from people often called "elderly" or even "the old old" -- between the ages of 75 and 100…most are extraordinary in their own ways."
"Their stories are eventful and moving, and well supported by archival photos and footage."
