On Thursday May 8th from 5P to 7P at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center there will be a special screening of the award-winning documentary Gen Silent followed by a discussion with the filmmaker/director Stu Maddux, cast members & national leaders about how this amazing movie mobilized a world-wide movement. This event is part of AARP's semi-annual convention, Life@50+ that runs May 8th to May 10th at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center. Barrie Atkin AARP MA Executive Council & Executive Producer of Gen Silent stated, “Since 2010, this extraordinary & moving documentary has changed lives around the world – helping build awareness of the unique challenges that older lesbian, gay, transgender & bisexual adults face as they age. Gen Silent is not just about the challenges of LGBT aging; it is a very important & “real” documentary about aging, period. It’s an important film for all of us to see, no matter what our age. Filmed in Boston in 2009, this documentary has truly mobilized a movement. Gen Silent has inspired audiences around the world to take action & received many awards for best documentary.” AARP chose Gen Silent as one of only three documentaries to be screened on Thursday May 8th. The 3-day program is filled with lots of fun events, seminars, celebrities, films & much more. Come hear Whoopi Goldberg, Captain Phillips, attend lots of workshops. A light supper/reception will follow the film.
