2nd cycle of free films for the Elderly
From 26 July, with the film ¿Y si vivimos todos juntos?, we'll be looking at friendship and communal living among the elderly.
The virtual Cineforum cycle is a proposal by ”la Caixa” Foundation's Programme for the Elderly and the aim, apart from enjoying a film, is to have an open group discussion to reflect on and debate current issues.
The idea is to create opportunities to think and talk about significant aspects of our lives: the role played by older people in society, the importance of learning to live with loss, the consequences for our well-being and health, stereotypes and ageist language, the issue of the meaning of life, etc.
The subjects proposed for the coming months are:
HOW TECHNOLOGY AFFECTS OLDER PEOPLE
You'll be able to watch the film Vuelta a casa de mi madre, in which a 40-year-old woman is forced to return to her mother's house after losing her job and being abandoned by her husband.
NEW WAYS OF LIVING TOGETHER
With the film ¿Y si vivimos todos juntos?, as well as enjoying this tribute to the elderly we'll also address the subject of friendship and living together.
...WHAT IF I'M DIAGNOSED WITH A SERIOUS ILLNESS?
With the film Ahora o nunca, we look at the many opportunities that life still offers and how to take advantage of them, overcoming the prejudices and differences that separate us all.
