Lives Well Lived: Celebrating the Secrets, Wit and Wisdom of Age

What is a life well lived? In the award-winning documentary, Lives Well Lived, 40 people with 3,000 years of collective life experience answer this question. Described by the Hollywood Reporter as “heartwarming lessons in how to grow old gracefully,” the documentary offers insights for people of all ages.

After a triumphant tour at major film festivals, most recently the Santa Barbara Film Festival, the documentary is set to have three screenings in the County of Santa Clara. The screenings are open and free to the public, but require a ticket.

Each screening also includes a question and answer session with the filmmaker Sky Bergman, who was first inspired by her grandmother to undertake this film.

“The Department of Aging and Adult Services is excited to bring this documentary to the residents of Santa Clara County,” said Diana Miller, Seniors’ Agenda Project Manager. Miller added that “as part of the County’s initiative Age Friendly Silicon Valley, we want to ensure an inclusive, fully livable community for all our residents.”

Age Friendly Silicon Valley, led by the Seniors’ Agenda of Santa Clara County, Department of Aging and Adult Services, facilitated the county becoming the first in the U.S. to have each and all of its cities become active and innovative members of the World Health Organization’s Global Network of Age-friendly Cities and Communities.
