The Aging Collection

The Aging Collection from Docusek2, features titles from several distributors devoted to issues related to aging.

The films in Docuseek2's Aging Collection examine and helps redefine how we look at the process of growing older. The films in this collection are optimistic, and always honest, never shying away from difficult subjects. Topics range from how older women view their changing physical features; elder artists; the challenges of long-term care; and the problem of financial and even sexual exploitation of older relatives.
