I just got some great news from my friend Stephen Dypiangco, Oscar-winning producer of God of Love and director of Home Unknown. How To Live Forever (www.liveforevermovie.com), a film that Stephen is producing, will be opening at the Siskel Film Center in Chicago tomorrow and playing for one week.
About How To Live Forever: Director Mark Wexler embarks on a worldwide trek to investigate just what it means to grow old and what it could mean to really live forever. But whose advice should he take? Does 94-year-old exercise guru Jack LaLanne have all the answers, or does Buster, a 101-year-old chain-smoking, beer-drinking marathoner? What about futurist Ray Kurzweil, a laughter yoga expert, or an elder porn star?
Wexler explores the viewpoints of delightfully unusual characters alongside those of health, fitness and life-extension experts in this engaging new documentary, which challenges our notions of youth and aging with comic poignancy. Begun as a study in life-extension, How To Live Forever evolves into a thought-provoking examination of what truly gives life meaning.
Director Mark Wexler will be present for audience discussion at the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday screenings. Joining Wexler on Sunday will be best-selling author Ted Fishman (CHINA INC., SHOCK OF GRAY)
