The Silver Mirror

The Silver Mirror

The Silver Mirror is a feature-length global documentary film that investigates the topic of aging in the 21st century. By weaving through various cultural contexts, scientific views and personal stories, The Silver Mirror is searching for a universal voice that fearlessly and intimately conveys humanity’s ancient, collective and fundamental struggle with the fragility of the human condition imposed by the inevitability of aging - while also pondering that for the first time in human history, impending scientific surges in our health-span will drastically change how we live our lives.
