film stillEach month over one million people reach the age of 60; those over the age of 80 are the fastest-growing segment of the global population. Some of these people will require care and support, but many more will be able to retain their independence, pride and productivity.

Shot on location around the world, this video comprises individual short stories of elderly people and the role they play in their respective societies: a fisherman in India; a grandmother in Uganda; an activist in Argentina; a dance teacher in Cambodia; a grandfather in Egypt and a volunteer in New York. PORTRAITS OF AGE shows how active and productive the senior citizen is today.
