Friday, July 20 at 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. -- HOW TO LIVE FOREVER (2011) Documentary featuring Ray Bradbury, Phyllis Diller, Willard Scott, and Suzanne Somers; Not Rated; 94 minutes.
Director Mark Wexler embarks on a worldwide trek to investigate just what it means to grow old and what it could mean to really live forever. But whose advice should he take? Does 94-year-old exercise guru Jack LaLanne have all the answers, or does Buster, a 101-year-old chain-smoking, beer-drinking marathoner? What about futurist Ray Kurzweil, a laughter yoga expert, or an elder porn star? Wexler explores the viewpoints of delightfully unusual characters alongside those of health, fitness and life- extension experts in this engaging new documentary, which challenges our notions of youth and aging with comic poignancy.
"An expert documentary, a responsible yet lighthearted film about the absurd things that folks do in the face of death." -- Chris Faraone, Boston Phoenix
