Younger – Looking Forward to Getting Older (cert tbc) + Q&A

Join us at this special Falkirk Science Film event and discover the key to healthy ageing through exercise.

This new documentary follows four women in their 60s, 70s and 80s as they train and compete in national and international athletics competitions. Dorothy, 85, loves the camaraderie of her gang (as she calls them). Joylyn, 69 hopes to keep going into her 80s and 90s. Sue, 69, says pole vaulting has helped her cope with cancer, twice. Noel, 74, loves the technical challenge of race walking. For all of them, training and competing in masters athletics is about being part of a supportive community, achieving personal goals, and living a purposeful life full of adventures and fun. In doing so, these women show an energy, joyful determination, and fulfilment in older age, that offers a powerful antidote to lazy stereotypes around ageing.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with filmmaker and former GB canoeist Danielle Sellwood who works with women, the disabled community, and older people, and Alex Rotas – award-winning photographer who specialises in photographing sportsmen and women in their 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s who still compete on the world stage.
