Documentary filmmaker Laurent Goldstein brings his production Your Second Fifty: Rising Above the Fears of Aging to Abbotsford on Tuesday, Feb. 26.
The screening takes place at Matsqui Centennial Auditorium (32315 South Fraser Way) in partnership with the City of Abbotsford.
Tickets are $12, with the proceeds being donated to the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation (FVHCF).
Doors open at 6 p.m. and the film starts at 7 p.m.
A question-and-answer period follows with a panel of experts, including: Dr. Haneef Alibhai from MD Cosmetic, Dr. Joanne Lih from Abbotsford Podiatry, Lisa MacDougall from New Leaf Wellness Centre, Dr. Simpson Leung from Cascadia Chiropractic Centre, Lyle MacDougall of Bakerview Financial Solutions and Dr. Matt Germaine of Abbotsford Health Chiropractic.
The Vancouver-based Goldstein and his production company, Citrus Pie Media Group, filmed Your Second Fifty across six countries and interviewed more than 45 aging experts.
The “live-inspired” message of the film, based on a best-seller by author and speaker Frank Moffat, is that chronological milestones, such as a 50th or 60th birthday, don’t have to be seen as “the beginning of the end.”
Featuring experts on aging such as Dr. Bruce Lipton, Dr. Daniel Amen, Dr. John Demartini, and David Wolfe – as well as celebrities Naomi Judd, Bruce Allen, Arielle Ford and Aurora Winter – it avers that, depending largely on mental attitude, such milestones can actually be seen as doorways to peak, productive years in our lives.
Tickets for the Abbotsford screening of Your Second Fifty are available online at eventbrite.ca and at Choices Market or the FVHCF office in Abbotsford Regional Hospital.
