DOC: What qualities of our everyday places help us live long, healthy lives? The "Landscapes of Longevity" documentary film investigates three cultural landscapes characterized by extraordinary rates of life expectancy â€“ Loma Linda, CA; Sardinia, Italy; and Okinawa, Japan. In 2013, graduate researchers from the University of Virginia's Departments of Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning travel the globe collecting dozens of personal narratives from healthy seniors that help reveal the complex relationship between health, place, and aging. However, the untimely death of a parent from heart disease â€” the #1 cause of death in the USA â€” pushes the researchers to see the project in new ways.
