COMING OF AGE / ANFANG 80 (Austria)

May 4, 2013 @ 9:20 am to approx. 11:30 am

COMING_OF_AGE_2

Coachella Valley Premiere – One Time Screening

A touching film about a unique couple in a society that ignores the elderly.  A love story about Rosa & Bruno, people in their 80s, who had considered themselves cut off from life until they suddenly experience what it’s like to live and love again.  Against all odds, they prove that it’s never too late for new love and they enjoy the freedom that love brings.  Does happiness have an expiration date?  Or are the memories of those very special moments with a person you only meet once in your life more important?
