Speed Dating for the 70+ Set this Valentine’s Day

Oceanside CA— From Seattle to Sarasota, a comic and poignant new documentary about our lifelong search for love launches in February across America.

With grassroots screenings in dozens of cities, THE AGE OF LOVE offers a fresh perspective on older hearts as it follows the adventures of 30 seniors who sign up for a unique speed dating event for 70- to 90-year-olds. Fearlessly candid about themselves and what they’re seeking, these WWII babies soon discover how the search for love changes—or doesn’t change—from first love to the far reaches of life. (see trailer)

The film shatters stereotypes in a world where four generations now live side-by-side. Giving voice to a largely invisible yet booming older demographic, the film entertainingly explores the undimmed needs and desires that live on beneath wrinkled skin and thinning hair. As one 74-year-old speed dater puts it, “No one, not even my children, ask me what’s in my heart anymore.”

Winner of the Paley Center Doc Pitch Competition and awarded a Fledgling Fund grant—for its “potential to change hearts and minds” in American culture—THE AGE OF LOVE began its festival run at Newport Beach and at the AARP National Expo in Boston, and will screen in venues from Sweden to Singapore in 2015.

With the goal of creating a national dialogue about the emotional lives of our oldest generation, the Valentine’s screening launch will also kick off a nationwide series of senior speed dating events.

The film ‘The Age of Love’ will be showing at Merrill Gardens at Oceanside, 3500 Lake Blvd, Oceanside, CA 92056 on February 10, 2015 at 3:00pm. Please call to RSVP  (760) 621-0849
