August - 79 Years Old: One Minute to Midnight Shorts| 1mins
Director: Steve French | Producer: Second Banana Films
Focus Years: 2010 | Country: United States
At 79, August isn't ready to give up the woodworking shop he keeps out back of his home. Though he can't take on big jobs anymore, he's happy to make furniture for his four kids. This is from the series of short (one-minute) animations featuring anecdotes and moments from the lives of people over 60, from a variety of multicultural backgrounds living in Australia. Some are joyful, others triumphant and still others poignant or creeping into tragedy. Their stories are as many and varied as anybodyâ€™s, but most are touched with humor, showing us what it is like to be an older person, here and now.
