Mark Wexler has made a terrific new documentary called How To Live Forever, with the ironic subtitle, Results May Vary. Aging2.0 is not that focused on those colorful (and generally bearded) characters who propose ways to solve the aging problem, fascinating as they may be; we are more interested in improving the quality of life for those already here. However, that being said, this movie is right on the Aging2.0 mark, as it contains many poignant and colorful interviews between Mark and a host of people who know what it's like to be old. As such it helps to recast growing old from growing grey and dull, and provide food for thought for many of those who haven't even considered the topic. I caught up with him at TedMed in October, short video below.
By the way, you can see a trailer for the movie on the movie's website, and order a DVD or that roller-coaster T-shirt - great stocking stuffer ideas.
