    this is so inspiring. We as a society really need to connect to our elders. They hold the wisdom of the past.

    My grandfather is old, and sometimes he tells me interesting stories which are neat.

  • As an artist and former caregiver to my elderly grandmother, I simply love all of you who had anything at all to do with the idea behind and the making of this film. If ever you do anything similar to it, I would love to get involved. Kudos, total and complete kudos.

    The only good painting was the one of the Chinese lady, the others were totally lifeless. I’d be offended if someone heard my whole life story and painted me as a dead prune.

    This was absolutely inspiring and beautiful. Our older generations hold the answers to our future we just need to take the time to listen. These people have seen the worlds pattern of change many times over. When you think about it, they are walking interactive history books. There is no one cooler than a cool elderly person.
