A STORY ABOUT AGING HAPPY, HEALTHY & FREE OF DISEASE
The Longevity Film investigates the complex topic of ageing by documenting the longest lived, healthiest & happiest cultures from around the world.
Filmmaker Kale Brock (The Gut Movie, 2018) visits specific communities with significantly improved average life expectancies, remarkably low rates of disease and an extremely high quality of life well into the later years. Traveling to Okinawa (Japan), Loma Linda (California) and Ikaria (Greece) for a deep dive into longevity culture and what it really takes to get well and stay well, Brock delivers this transformational documentary with light hearted wit and a warm sense of relatability.
Featured expert commentary by Dr. Mark Hyman, Nick Buettner, Dr. Ross Walker, Dr. Craig Wilcox, Paul Chek, Daniel Vitalis, Dr. Damian Kristof & more.
“The longevity cultures live, on average, 8-10 years longer than us, and these are good quality years, often spent surrounded by friends and family with a big smile on their face. We don’t have that in the West. We waste away, dying earlier and unhappier than we need to. The truth is, we’re not living in a way that’s conducive to longevity. Whilst making this film even I realised that I needed to totally rethink my lifestyle if I wanted to stay well – that’s a huge challenge to overcome. “
