Stuck at Home (together)
Dim the Lights and Push Play
Our team is sharing a couple of picks every week from our UnLonely Film Festival to get your reaction and spark a conversation. Take a look and leave your comments below!
The documentary film, Dial-A-Ride, captures the stories and friendships of a group of passengers on a community bus through rural South Wales. The film reveals that these journeys are a lifeline for many older people who without this source of transportation, would not be able to leave home.
This is a funny and light-hearted film celebrating the social life of older adults. It encourages people to rethink what it means to grow older, while also providing an important reminder about how easily one can become isolated when mobility or transportation become challenging. Without this charity-funded transportation these seniors would have no way of staying social – and look at the fun they have!
