“Lives Well Lived” celebrates the incredible wit, wisdom and experiences of adults aged 75 to 100 years old. Through their intimate memories and inspiring personal histories encompassing over 3000 years of experience, forty people share their secrets and insights to living a meaningful life. These men and women open the vault on their journey into old age through family histories, personal triumph and tragedies, loves and losses—seeing the best and worst of humanity along the way. Their thoughtful perspectives offer a treasure trove of life lessons about perseverance, the human spirit, and staying positive in the midst of the greatest challenges. Their stories will make you laugh, perhaps cry, but mostly inspire you.
“Lives Well Lived” is currently making the rounds at a variety of film festivals, and garnered the Audience Choice Award at the DOCUTAH Film Festival as well a Best of the Fest Award at the Nevada City Film Festival
The film will make its theatrical release in the spring of 2018.
