How to Live Forever (2011) Teaser Trailer
The teaser trailer for How to Live Forever.
Filmmaker Mark Wexler is not going down without a fight. Faced with the devastating loss of his mother and his own advancing age, Mark takes off on a curious, lively, sometimes troubling enquiry into just what it means to grow old and what it could mean to really live forever.br />
But whose advice should he take? Does a chain-smoking, beer-drinking centenarian marathoner have all the answers? What about an elder porn star? His search takes him to the places where people live longest, from Okinawa to Iceland. He journeys to Las Vegas to attend a funeral directors convention and the Ms. Senior America pageant. He contemplates a future in cold storage at a cryonics facility in Arizona. He receives exercise tips from Jack LaLanne, hormone replacement advice from Suzanne Somers, and promises of eternal life from biogerontologist Aubrey de Grey.br />
Yet the more he travels into the strange worlds of laughter yoga, calorie restriction, and old-fashioned religion, the less sure he becomes of his goal. Can it be that life's true meaning is found in the humble chili dog? A fun, provocative, and engaging new documentary, which challenges our notions of youth and aging with comic poignancy. Begun as a study in life-extension, How to Live Forever evolves into a thought-provoking examination of what truly gives life meaning.
