Forever Young

Being successful today means you have to look and feel vital, young and fit. While the share of elderly people in western societies is steadily growing, they are increasingly seen and treated as a burden. Through the films in this series we examine the paradox of ageing: everyone wants to grow old, but nobody wants to be old.
