- Sky Bergman
A huge hit when it premiered at Maine International Film Festival last July, LIVES WELL LIVED is a documentary by Sky Bergman that celebrates the incredible wit, wisdom and experiences of adults aged 75 to 100 years old. Through their intimate memories and inspiring personal histories encompassing over 3000 years of experience, 40 people reveal their secrets and insights into living a meaningful life. Sharing family histories, personal triumph and tragedies, loves and losses, these men and women prove that aging is something to cherish, retirement doesn’t mean you retire from life, and growing old doesn’t mean growing silent. Their stories will make you laugh, perhaps cry, but mostly inspire you.
Winner of Best of Festival, 2017 Nevada City Film Festival
“Lives Well Lived” is a fine way to both celebrate the seasoned among us as well as the human spirit that continues to goad us on even in the darkest of times.
