An afternoon of short films for older people

In a world which increasingly ignores our older population, we invite you to an afternoon of short films about ageing where we ask:

What is beautiful about ageing?  What does the future hold for older people?  How do we celebrate older age and how does film, in particular, highlight it? How do we see older people and how do they see themselves?

Join us for an afternoon of films and discussion about these topics with food, refreshments and a raffle!
