Advanced Style is a documentary film about stylish older women living in New York City. The film follows the daily lives and inspiring moments of New York’s most fashionable seniors. These portraits of women aging gracefully with tremendous spirit will challenge conventional ideas about beauty, growing old, and Western culture's increasing obsession with youth.
For three years we have filmed many stylish, older women in New York City, but we need your help to turn this project into a full-length documentary film. Through our discussion of style, we've started a grander conversation about embracing age and living life to the fullest. Our *senior* starlets share their tips for choosing accessories, and perhaps more importantly, how they cope with their changing physical appearances and abilities, sex at an older age and, inevitably, death. No topic is off limits.
This film will inspire audiences with the extraordinary personalities and incredible insights of the women we've met. In a time when the media largely ignores older people, and paints a depressing, often negative picture of aging, we want to share the very opposite experiences of women we've met. These women face age with positive attitudes, staying active and making themselves visible their creative approaches to dressing. Style is the bond that has linked these women together in Advanced Style, but their attitudes and spirit have become the true bond, and one that we know will be best captured on film.
WE NEED YOU:
We are determined to share this enriching footage with you; we've already received worldwide interest in our short trailer film and after three years of capturing the marvelous spirit of Advanced Style's women on film, we are ready to complete production of a full-length feature film by the end of Summer 2012. In order to finish the film and put a much-deserved spotlight on these incredible advanced style ladies we ask for your help to cover editing, sound and color mastering, music licensing, festival entries and distribution.
We THANK YOU from all our hearts for making this dream come true!
