Aging: Representations on Screen and in Print, a Conversation
September 9, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
How is aging represented though different media – on film and by the written word?
Sheila Malkind will talk about film, specifically the Legacy Film Festival on Aging which she runs, the only three-day festival uniquely devoted to films on aging, held annually in San Francisco. In its ninth year, it celebrates the aging process as profound and meaningful, often challenging, and always courageous. Filmmakers portray many facets of this unique, ever-changing experience honestly, artfully, and with compassion and love. Coming up September 20-22 at The New People Cinema in San Francisco’s Japantown. https://www.legacyfilmfestivalonaging.org
Nan Narboe brings us the written word as editor of Aging: An Apprenticeship (awarded a Silver Medal at this year’s IBPA Benjamin Franklin Awards) an anthology of “essays offering an intimate and lyrical account of aging through the decades. Authors Judy Blume, Andrew McCarthy, Gloria Steinem etc. draw from their own experiences, describing life’s losses and gains to form a complex and unflinching portrait of the years from nearing fifty to ninety and beyond.” https://aginganapprenticeship.com/
Signed copies of the book and information on the film festival will be available at this Odd Mondays. Maxine Einhorn of the Mostly British Film Festival and Noe Valley Word Week will moderate. Free admission and refreshments.
