Screening at the Cinema Bad Saarow

A doctor from Lima is still working in the hospital, in New York a sexologist is still receiving clients. On the other side of the world, a sprightly Norwegian is still helping to raise lambs and a distinguished Dutchman is fanatically working on an online platform for human rights. What do they have in common? They have all passed their 100th birthday.

In this documentary, seven colourful centenarians give an insight into their lives today and their rich pasts. All of them are still very active, even though the clock is ticking, the body sometimes no longer plays along and some are worried about the future of the world.

German-Peruvian filmmaker Heddy Honigmann visits these very old citizens of the world and asks them about life. What do they expect from life? Each tells his story in his own way, sometimes with humour, sometimes with a touch of melancholy, but always with the wisdom reserved only for the oldest among us.
