Coming to NYC’s New School for a special Valentine’s event this Friday, February 13: THE AGE OF LOVE
Steven Loring’s exploration of senior dating had its world premiere at Newport Beach last year. It went on to fests including at DOC NYC, Cucalorus, St Louis, and Rhode Island, and is scheduled to screen at Big Sky and Thessaloniki Doc. This screening is part of a series of special events taking place around the country beginning this month.
I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
An unprecedented speed-dating event for seniors serves as the backdrop for this alternately poignant and funny look at love among the 70+ set. Thirty brave souls register – widows and widowers, longtime divorcees and the lovelorn – each willing to endure an anxiety-inducing, but mercifully brief, series of setups in their search for companionship in their golden years. Candidly confronting feelings of insecurity, loneliness and anticipation, Steven Loring’s film demonstrates the universality of love and desire, regardless of age.
