Proving you're never too old to learn something new, initially reluctant seniors discover the wonders of the world-wide-web with the help of their teenage mentors. Their exploration of cyber-space is catapulted to a whole new level when 89 year-old Shura decides to create a YouTube tutorial. This inspires a lively competition where hidden talents and competitive spirits are revealed. A heartwarming, candid and at times humorous exploration of the victories and challenges seniors encounter as they dive into the digital world.Written by
The digital age has transformed the world for older folks but for the millennials have not known a world where they were not connected. In Cyber-Seniors, millennials cross generational lines to the greatest generation and teach them how to surf the information superhighway. The cyber-senior project has some unexpected consequences; they also created a bridge of understanding between the young and the old and made them realize they are more alike than different. It also shares some of the seniors past and you discover why they are the greatest generations. Set in Toronto, the story is timeless and is a warm story. This movie has some funny moments, as when they are trying to explain "unfriending" on Facebook. A touching documentary on the beauty of bringing the world a little closer a creating a few Youtube stars. Check out this beautiful tale on the positive side of the world wide web. I saw this film as part of the Atlanta Film festival.
