If you could see your family’s future, would you change anything? FAST-FORWARD, a documentary film narrated by Rosario Dawson, follows four millennials and their parents as they travel through time to meet their future selves. Wearing an MIT-produced “aging empathy suit” and working with professional make-up artists, they grapple with the realizations, conversations and mindsets required to age successfully. Research shows that family dynamics are a primary driver of success — or failure — as we age.
Including expert commentary by medical and aging professionals, we see sons, fathers, daughters and mothers live through a spectrum of emotions with one another. They revisit their plans, make big changes and approach the rest of their lives with entirely new perspectives. FAST FORWARD is a story that shows how successful aging is possible when intergenerational loved ones converse about their needs, communicate from the heart, and plan for the process ahead.
