Many people fear and fight aging. If your turn to almost any channel on TV, you’ll find older women attempting to cloak themselves in youth.  Age is a deficit.

The documentary Get Real ! Wise Women Speak, is trying to change the way people, and women in particular, think about growing older. The film shares the insights of older women, ranging from actress Jane Fonda to Sister Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo, a Buddhist nun. The documentary’s director, writer and producer Joni Kimberlin discusses the film and the power and value of age.
