On this edition of Your Call, we’re discussing this year’s Legacy Film Festival on Aging, which inspires, educates, and entertains intergenerational audiences around the issues of aging. “The stories of aging are the stories of our times,” says the festival’s founder Sheila Malkind.

We discuss highlights, including Today Was A Good Day, a documentary featuring different perspectives on the day-to-day life of a caregiver, as seen through the eyes of three Southeastern Michigan residents who have taken on the many roles and responsibilities of caring for an aging parent.
