Lives Well Lived: Celebrating the Secrets, Wit and Wisdom of Age
Director: Sky Bergman

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 intimate memories and inspiring personal histories encompassing over 3000 years of experience, they share their secrets and 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. Their stories will make you laugh, perhaps cry, but mostly inspire you.

After the film, authors ERIN McHUGH & EMILY LUCHETTI will regale us with a fun presentation about their new book So Who’s Counting?: The Little Quote Book About Growing Older and Still Kicking Ass

So long nostalgia, and goodbye resignation! This book of quotes reminds us that growing old isn’t about slowing down and taking it easy—it’s a chance to ask, “What’s next?” Sixty is the new fifty, seventy’s the new sixty, and older is getting younger every day. So Who’s Counting is all about aging with gusto and celebrating what lies ahead.

Books will be available for purchase at this event by Oblong Books & Music.

“Aging is an extraordinary process where you become the person you should have been.” —David Bowie
