Fridays, 2/22, 3/29

1 - 4 PM in the Assembly Room

Facilitator: Emily Edrington

People of all ages are invited to join us for the

first meetings of the Senior Center’s Aging in

Film Club. At each meeting, we’ll watch a film

and follow it with a discussion, exploring how

aging issues and older adults are represented in

popular films.

This spring, we’ll draw selections from The

Center’s Classic Film Fridays series, which

is currently progressing through Academy

Award Best Picture winners in chronological

order. We’ll examine two semi-recent films

that feature themes of aging and older adult

characters: American Beauty on February 22 and

Million Dollar Baby on March 29. Among other

questions, we’ll ask how well these two films

have aged, themselves.

The Senior Center’s Aging in Film Club is

presented in partnership with the University of

Iowa Aging and Longevity Studies Program.
