This movie was exhilarating. Watch it! I am so happy that it finally made its way to the top of my queue.
Cyber-Seniors (2014) is a documentary about a group of teenagers who mentor a group of older adults on how to use computers.
The documentary shows the older adults gaining skills in using the mouse, using menus and then using programs such as browsers, social media sites and video viewing sites.
But this partnership isn't limited to a one-way transfer of information. No way.
The older adults also get an opportunity to talk to the teens about their extended families, their work experience, their military experience, and their present challenges and opportunities. I was moved to tears while watching the older participants use technology to express their feelings, to share their interests, to connect with their extended families and to offer their perspective on life.
