Kings Point is a documentary film that profiles six residents who have lived, for over 20 years, in a retirement community that has over 15,000 people in it. The stories of these long-time residents, in what is essentially a small age-segregated city (you have to be over 55 to live there), highlight the struggles of aging in a community comprised entirely of your peers, virtually cut off from children and grandchildren, who often live thousands of miles away. Kings Point will offer a moving and often humorous look at this uniquely American phenomenon, exposing the often grim reality that lies beneath the sunny promise of an “active retirement lifestyle.”
85 hours of footage has been shot, and we are now in post-production, looking for funds to hire an editor so we can complete the film.
We need the support of people like you to donate AND share the trailer to help spread the word to others. We can't even begin to explain the impact your gift makes on the film (for example, $75 will pay for one hour of editing!), and without your support we won't be able to finish this film. Donations beyond our Kickstarter goal are welcome, every little bit helps. Please partner with us to make completing this film a reality!
If you are not in a position to make a donation, we could still use your help! Share the trailer and details of our Kickstarter campaign with all your friends by doing one or more of the following:
- Grab the embed code for the video trailer widget and put it on your blog or website.
