New OT -- Jan 12

 

As a media cataloger, I have seen more depressing and heart-rending documentaries on more wretched and heart-breaking subjects ... however, watching Young@heart again, tonight on PBS, reminds me that there are those other documentaries, the heart-warming and funny ones.

For those who don't know it, Young@heart is about a chorus of seniors (average age 80) who sing current music (as I type, they are singing Talking Heads) and tour with their show.

This made me think about a few others I have seen recently ...

In the shadow of the stars -- a look at the chorus members of the SF opera ... all of whom are sure they could be the stars, given the chance

The Grace Lee project -- Grace Lee, a SoCal filmmaker starts looking for all the other Grace Lees that people once knew, wondering if they still fit the stereotype of the Good Asian Girl everyone remembers meeting

The wild parrots of Telegraph Hill -- about Mark Bittner, a near-homeless man who teaches himself about the wild parrots living up on the hill in SF

The teachings of Jon -- a filmmaker tells the story of her older brother with Downs, and manages to do so without being mawkish

Curtain call -- a look at the lively residents of an Actor's Equity retirement home

 

Have any other titles? for example, I still haven't seen Anvil! The Story of Anvil ...
