Light Years introduces Dee, a writer and professor who savours her life-long passion for African dance; Anita, whose work as an actress, dancer, playwright and poet spans eight decades; and Paul, who started painting at 51 and helps to redefine “retirement.”
Dee, Anita and Paul know that whether eighteen or eighty, we all need meaningful relationships, a sense of purpose, and the chance to express ourselves. They reveal that the second half of life can actually be a time of rediscovery and renewal, of giving back, and growing into more authentic versions of ourselves.
This is the heartbeat of Light Years: the choice to remain engaged in community, to continue learning, giving back, and growing as we grow older.
As their stories unfold over several years, Dee, Anita and Paul face challenges and threats to their independence. Each responds with a resiliency that transcends those challenges and affirms our potential for renewal at any age.
The event starts with a viewing of Light Years followed by a hosted discussion.
