“We are delighted to be back at The Strand to co-present another special film,” confirmed Mary Eads, Executive Director of Bartlett Woods. “We hope that seniors, their families, caregivers, friends, and healthcare professionals will join us. We love the idea of helping to bring the generations together, and are impressed that this fun and inventive film was created by teenagers. Thank you to The Strand for joining us in this effort.”
Cyber Seniors is a humorous and heartwarming documentary feature. It chronicles the extraordinary journey of a group of colorful senior citizens as they discover the world of the Internet through the guidance of teenage mentors. Their exploration of cyber-space is catapulted to another level when 89 year-old Shura decides to create a YouTube cooking video. A spirited video competition for the most “views” evolves as the cyber-seniors’ hidden talents and competitive spirits are revealed. Cyber-Seniors provides insight into the wonderful things that can happen when generation gaps are bridged, proving you are never too old to get ‘connected’. The film runs 75 minutes.
Admission is by donation, and donations will benefit the Bartlett Woods Fundraising campaign and The Strand Theater.
