If you think of old age as a time of decline, disability and loneliness, SuperAgers: Getting Old, Living YoungTM will spur you to think again.
And if you are getting older (aren’t we all?) and wondering how to live a good life in your later years, this film will be an inspiration.
It’s a documentary about people who are getting old and still finding joy and fulfillment in life. They’re “SuperAgers”—but not because they’re running marathons or jumping out of airplanes. Their superpower is knowing how to thrive, and not just survive, in spite of their years and whatever life throws their way.
The film includes practical tips from experts on the best ways to care for an aging body, bracketed by producer Jim Owen’s personal story of transformation. Among those highlighted are:
• PAUL IRVING, senior advisor to the Milken Institute’s Center on the Future of Aging and author of The Upside of Aging.
• JOHN PETERS, PhD, co-founder and chief strategy officer, Anschutz Health and Wellness Center.
• SUSAN ALBERS, PsyD, clinical psychologist at the Cleveland Clinic.
• LISA RYERSON, past president of the AARP Foundation (2013-2022).
But the film’s real stars are the SuperAgers who show us how rich life can be when you approach aging as an adventure.
SuperAgers: Getting Old, Living YoungTM is directed by HaveyPro Cinema, a Denver-based documentary film company that has won three Emmy Awards, twelve Telly Awards, and numerous photography and film festival awards.
