In the West we have, somewhere along the way, seemingly lost our Elders. This film came from an intention to find everyday elders, not necessarily the top of any field or industry, but who have lived interesting lives. People who have some wisdom to share about different aspects, from the general such as Love, Money, Family, Sex, Work, Death, to very personal themes.
70 year old Gert, a perfect subject, was introduced through a friend Mira, who collaborated with me on this project. A Danish man of the sea and yogi, we hear some of his tales, family life, and perspectives on his own mortality.
The film has been acquired for exclusive screening rights by Aeon Film and is viewable here
