Coming of Age in Aging America
Coming of Age in Aging America is perhaps the most important film to emerge to date within The New Gerontology paradigm. In contrast to the historically dour 4-D perspective on aging (decline, deterioration, dependency, depression), it is refreshingly optimistic and celebratory. Developed in collaboration with the MacArthur Network on Aging and Society, it is “an extensive public media project aimed at creating conversation and action to productively shape America as an aging society” (www.theagingamericaproject.com). Its message is unique, ambitious, focused, and systemic.
