Poetics of Aging


Sheila Malkind

Sheila MalkindSheila Malkind, Executive Director of the Legacy Film Series and the Legacy Film Festival on Aging, presents the documentary film, My Father’s Hopes (4 min). Both the Legacy Film Series and the the Legacy Film Festival on Aging present a series of independent and entertaining films that portray the variety of later life experiences. Thanks to the artistry of the filmmakers, we showcase older adults telling their stories with eloquence and grace. Audiences both older and younger are, hopefully, inspired to use their own potential to create a ‘good old age’. In that way, we create a legacy for generations to come, so that they may look forward to the unfolding adventure of living. View Trailer of The Sandwich Generation, a documentary film in our catalog.
