“Reaching Across Generations” with Andrew Belser, Creator and Producer of FaceAge, Part 2 of 2

Part 2 of my talk with Andrew Belser, professor of Movement, Voice, and Acting at Penn State, and creator of an award winning video program called FaceAge — a deeply moving work that challenges perceptions about what it means to be “old,” fosters introspection, and cross-generational connections. Listen as Andrew tells us more about the neuroscience behind FaceAge and a little bit about his personal story, including how an encounter with his older Uncle on a barn rooftop changed his life.
