Age Before Beauty

Australia, 1980 (MIFF 1981, The Creative Development Branch)

Director: Sarah Gibson

Age Before Beauty presents a positive view of ageing and being old. It shows older women exercising and dancing, ageing before your eyes, in a sexual encounter in their seventies, choosing chiropractic and acupuncture treatments, reading their own poetry in a nursing home, and much more... including a new theme song for getting older.
