Inspired by the idea that one of the greatest gifts one generation can give to another is the wisdom it has gained from experience, multi-award-winning photographer and filmmaker Andrew Zuckerman has recorded the thoughts and ideas of fifty of the world's most prominent writers, artists, designers, actors, politicians, musicians, and religious and business leaders, all over sixty-five years old. To create profound, honest, and truly revealing portraits of these luminaries, Zuckerman has captured their voices, their physical presence, and the written word. The resulting book and film, included here on a DVD, provide an extraordinary legacy for the generations that follow, and a timeless portrait of the common experiences that unite us all.
