WELCOME TO THE LAST ACT
A growing series of short documentaries that celebrates how we can live better while living longer.
Who better to give us lessons to apply throughout our lives and show us how to face those later years with dignity, spirituality, wit, and candor than our 80+ elders who are living out loud in their Last Act?
Meet TV legend Norman Lear, whose creative spark continues into his 90s. Be inspired by Phyllis Shlecter, who was bat mitzvah’ed at age 82. Listen to the love story of Dick and Lois Gunther, falling for each other again 70 years later.
Come meet our bubbes, zaydes, aunties, and neighbors. Then, introduce us to yours: Record an interview with the person who you think is living their senior years in an inspiring way — and share it!
Norman Lear: The Game of Life
Legendary TV writer and producer Norman Lear continues to create into his 90s, driven by curiosity about “the game of life” and what comes next. His next passion project: a comedy titled “Guess Who Died?”
