Near Life Experience: Twentysomethings in Retirement Homes DocumentaryPosted on April 19th, 2011
What twentysomething doesn’t dream of spending every moment hanging out with the elderly at retirement homes?
My good friend Micah Gallagher and I – that’s who.
We made a short-documentary about the experience called Near Life Experience that received Runner-Up Best Documentary at the 168 film festival in Los Angeles. (Don’t ever run against a Holocaust documentary. You’ll lose every time).
In your 20′s there are so many questions about career, marriage, and faith, so what better way to write the beginning of our story than by looking at the end.
Watch Part One of Three of the short-film Near Life Experience below.
You’re going to want to watch until the end. A man named Candido describes his “dream” jobs that had an entire theater howling with laughter.
