Legacy Film Festival highlights Positive Aging

The Legacy Film Festival on Aging, in its second year in San Francisco, CA, will showcase films that present a positive spin on aging July 6-8.  The film festival, in partnership with the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, highlights a number of wonderful films including one from our very own Research Center for Arts and Culture.  RCAC’s Art Cart: Saving the Legacy, Directed by Josh Haskell, highlights an intergenerational arts project connecting professional older artists with teams of graduate students who document the artists’ work.  Another great film that will be shown is Eric Ellena and Berna Huebner’s I Remember Better when I Pain.  This film highlights the benefits of creative therapy on people with Alzheimer’s.  Another interesting film on the docket is Age of Champions, directed by Christopher Rufo.  It tells a story of the National Senior Olympics featuring a 100-year-old tennis champion, 86-year-old pole vaulter and more.  If you’re in San Francisco, check it out, and if not, you can find more information about how to view these inspiring films online.
