The film Still kicking honors the gift of age, and poignantly illustrates that growing old can be a time of creative expression and satisfaction. Challenging the perceptions and attitudes towards being old, still kicking is certain to trigger dialogue and ignite the imagination of us all.


"In a world where we too frequently encounter negative images of aging, come book and film abundant with elders who, through love of and work with their particular craft, embody Browning's oft-quoted grow old with me the best is yet to be. In film, photography and oral history, Amy Gorman and Greg Young have captured the creative spirit of these remarkable Bay Area women."
