Documentary Screening: Cyber-Seniors
Cyber- Seniors is a comedic documentary that follows the extraordinary journey of several senior citizens as they discover the magic of the world-wide-web, through the guidance of teenaged mentors. Their exploration of cyber-space is catapulted to a whole new level when 89 year-old Shura decided to create a YouTube cooking tutorial. This sets the ball in motion for a spirited YouTube competition where hidden talents and competitive spirits are revealed. The film is heartwarming, candid and humours, and provides insight into the wonderful things that can happen when generation gaps are bridged, and new ways of connecting are explored.
