Can your golden years truly be golden? Josh Kornbluth thinks so, but he says it starts with how you think about aging. The actor explains this in the video “Age without Ageism.” It’s part of his web series Citizen Brain.

"If we're gonna get old, the thing is there's so much beauty that can be in that time in our lives."

Josh’s web series Citizen Brain is part of a project with the UCSF Memory and Aging Center. You can see his video Age Without Ageism followed by a Q&A with him on Friday 9/20 at New People Cinema in San Francisco, during the Legacy Film Festival on Aging.
