Director Mark Wexler embarks on a worldwide trek to investigate just what it means to grow old and what it could mean to really live forever. But whose advice on immortality should he take? Does a chain-smoking, beer-drinking centenarian marathoner have all the answers? What about an elder porn star or the world’s oldest person?
Wexler contrasts these unusual characters with the insights of health, fitness and life extension experts in his engaging new documentary, which challenges our notions of youth and aging with comic poignancy. Begun as a boomer’s quest for the fountain of youth, How To Live Forever evolves into a thought-provoking examination of what truly gives life meaning.
