Fast Forward. You’re 85. Are You Ready?
Fast Forward. You’re 85. Are You Ready?
Award-winning documentary Fast-Forward follows four adult children and their parents as they travel through time to meet their future selves. Wearing an MIT-produced “aging empathy suit” and working with professional make-up artists, they grapple with the realizations, conversations and mindset required to age well. Ultimately, the families learn they have more control over how they age than they thought.
