Still from the film, América, about brothers who return to their hometown of Colima, Mexico to care for their ailing 93-year-old grandmother. "

On this edition of Your Call, we’ll discuss San Francisco’s upcoming 9th annual Legacy Film Festival on Aging with its executive director, Sheila Malkind. 

Ten thousand people turn 65 every day in the US. By the year 2030, people over age 65 are expected to make up 20% of the population, compared to just 13% in 2010. What stories are filmmakers telling about elders, caregiving, and how to live well and enjoy life despite the challenges of aging?
