A humorous and heartwarming feature documentary, CYBER-SENIORS adds to the important international conversation about the growing generation gap. Focusing on a group of senior citizens who take their first steps into cyber-space under the tutelage of teenage mentors, the film expertly renders a thought-provoking look at a spirited group of men and women who are enriched by digitally re-connecting with their families and each other. Finding their footing rather quickly, the group moves on to compete for the most YouTube views while swiftly building their online inventory of friends.
The idea for the Cyber-Seniors documentary came from a high school project that was launched by two sisters.
Cyber-Seniors firmly believe you’re never too old to learn something new. Even if it’s the Internet. Get familiar with each of them to learn how the program improved not only their life, but also the lives of those around them.
This group of young mentors stumbled upon this project not knowing what to expect. Find out who they are and what they are up to.
