About the event
Join us for a screening of the groundbreaking documentary, Gen Silent.
This award-winning film follows a handful of LGBTQ people as they navigate their identities in a long-term care system that isn't always accepting.
Following the screening, there will be a live Q&A with the filmmaker and a panel of Alaska area LGBTQ aging advocates, who will share how they are making it a safer place to age without discrimination.
This screening is copresented by SAGE Alaska & UAA Center for Human Development's Alaska Training Cooperative.
During the event we will be giving a 'sneak preview' of our upcoming film, All The Lonely People. This film examines the growing epidemic of isolation and loneliness. Much of this film was shot in Alaska and was made possible with the support of the Alaska community!
Introduction by Filmmaker & Producer, Joseph Applebaum.
Film screening (1 hr)
Live Q&A w/ Filmmaker & Director, Stu Maddux, a member of the SAGE Alaska Steering Committee, Phyllis Rhodes, and AARP Alaska President, Madeline G. Holdorf.
The event is free, but donations are encouraged. All proceeds help us continue our social-impact filmmaking and the completion of, All The Lonely People. Because of COVID-19 we are currently placing cameras in the hands of our film participants to safely capture their experience in isolation.
