My primary role is to serve as a reviewer of documentary films devoted to aging related topics. I would very much like to review your film, The Elders, for an upcoming issue of this journal. The GSA is a professional association of around 5,000 members engaged in research, practice, and policy designed to understand and to improve the quality of life of aging individuals across the globe. I would appreciate being able to speak with you about your wonderful film, if possible. My office phone at Kansas State University is 785 532-1483. My cell phone is 785 341-3782. Thank you for considering my request and for taking the time to contact me (I hope)! Best regards, Rick.

Through the eyes of an aging generation, The Elders examines what it really means to live, by coming of age. This website is dedicated to showcasing the stories filmed and the filmmaker's journey to film them.


A feature-length documentary, The Elders uses stylized interview portraits of elderly individuals to tell a universal story about life's most important lessons. Thematically organized around life lessons that reflect a wide range of human emotion and experience, the film seeks to reveal a larger more complex portrait of our shared humanity.
