“I would like to be able to embrace my later years but I’m still scared because I don’t know what’s going to happen,” says Randi Gedaliah of New York City in a documentary Embracing Aging: Families Facing Change produced by Third Way Media (formerly Mennonite Media). Gedaliah’s father, Harry Davis, 86, is one of the elders featured in the program. The documentary addresses the universal topic of aging through the eyes of five extended families from across the country. The program probes phases of aging, retirement, housing options, care issues and options, relationships,aging in different cultures, and the role of faith and the church.
