Something to Celebrate

Top of page

Something to Celebrate sets out to prove that life doesn't necessarily slow down after the age of 60. This upbeat film about old age features people ranging in years from 71 to 92. From Betty Brett, who celebrated her 72nd birthday by riding in a hot-air balloon, to Bill Oliver, a fraud artist who retired to become an honest man at the age of 74, they are all individuals with a fierce sense of independence and a notion that the best way to keep alive is to be intensely curious about tomorrow.

1983, 56 min 43 s
