Pippa - 93 Years Old: One Minute to Midnight Shorts| 1mins
Director: Steve French | Producer: Second Banana Films
Focus Years: 2010 | Country: United States
Pippa has found that she's lost a lot of her friends - they've "gone in the mind". A friend of her daughter's, an Alzheimer's specialist, says that doing crosswords is a preventive measure. 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.
