The Documentary Feature-Film
The Beyond Sixty Project™ is an documentary feature film initiative about Women over the age of 60. It is composed of a series of interviews with women from all over the United States who openly share their life experiences and discuss what has led them to where they are today. Their resiliency throughout their lives and continued relevance in today’s world is forefront. Their stories are poignant and relatable. The women continue to grow and remain active in work and causes. They are rich in experiences. The women offer messages to their younger selves and to young women today. Included in the documentary will be archival footage of the women’s movement and the struggles, sacrifices and accommodations that women have made in pursuing their dreams.
