John - 61 Years Old: One Minute to Midnight Shorts| 1mins
Director: Steve French | Producer: Second Banana Films
Focus Years: 2010 | Country: United States
John has old eyes and gets frustrated with the repetitive aspects of his job. But on weekends, he gets out of Melbourne and surfs, where the only things he has to watch for are sharks. 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.
