The Silver Screen Story
Silver Screen Studios features interviews with legendary seniors like screenwriter Norman Lear, actress Marion Ross, and others who have much to teach about living well while living long – with creativity, spirituality, wit, and wisdom. It’s is a nationwide invitation for everyone to identify their Silver Screen Stars and capture and share their stories. Who around you is aging with wisdom, insight and inspiring wit to share? Add them to the Silver Screen community.
The project explores aging through a Jewish lens by including interviews with rabbis and scholars about what the Torah says about living long with spirituality. As a member of Reboot’s family of projects, Silver Screen Studios will engage interviewer and subject in dialogue around Jewishness and aging and connect the younger generations with those who have lived and learned before them.
Silver Screen Studios was inspired by our pilot docuseries titled “The Last Act.” The Last Act series was created in collaboration with creative partners Tiffany Woolf and Steve Goldbloom. It is a passion project for Tiffany, who lost both parents at a young age and now looks to to those living well into their later years to show her -- and all of us -- how to live life fully and to be role models for a great last act of our lives.
Silver Screen Studios is a project of Reboot. Reboot affirms the value of Jewish traditions and creates new ways for people to make them their own. Inspired by Jewish ritual and embracing the arts, humor, food, philosophy, and social justice, we produce creative projects that spark the interest of young Jews and the larger community.
