“…amazing portraits of creative women aging artfully. A companion DVD, Still Kicking, by Greg Young follows the life stories of 6 of the 12 women ….Here is a remarkable collaboration to illustrate the power of involvement in the arts. “Aging Artfully” is such an uplifting experience, it should be shared with persons of many ages and occupations.”
