Film about Young Caregiver

422 Views
Message 11 of 11

Hello AARP caregiving community --

 

I was caregiver to my elderly father post-stroke before his passing in 2012. I was 25 and he was 88 years old. There are so many young caregivers out there, and I can relate to your struggle.

 

I made a narrative film called Gold Star inspired by my eperiences and struggles as a caregiver. It's currently on the festival circuit and I'm hoping to share it with as many caregivers as possible, as a major goal in making the film was to illuminate the struggles that caregivers experience, as I felt very alone in my experiences.

 

The film is having its Midwestern Premiere next Thursday in Chicago at the Blue Whiskey Independent Film Festival at the Music Box Theatre at 8:30 pm.

 

 

Thank you!

-Victoria
