Do Not Go Gently

Narrated by Walter Cronkite, this award-winning documentary shows the life-enhancing impact that continued creative imagination and artistic expression can have–well into the years.  Through a celebratory exploration of the lives, wisdom, and creativity of elder artists, the film includes inspiring profiles of 82-year old quilter, Arlonzia Pettway, 90-year-old ballet dancer, Frederic Franklin, and 109-year-old composer, Leo Ornstein.  The film also emphasizes the importance of creative outlets for persons with Alzheimer’s, and includes interviews with gerontologyst, Dr. Gene Cohen, whose groundbreaking work offers a deeper understanding of  the limitless potential of the aging brain.
