NZ Premier of the award-winning ‘Gen Silent’ – 20 October

Number 8 Films marks the International Day Of Older Persons with the NZ premiere of ‘Gen Silent’, preceded by an encore screening of our film ‘The Colonel’s Outing’.

This award-winning doco follows the stories and struggles of elders in Boston’s LGBT community:

  • Married activists Sheri and Lois are determined to stay independent as long as they can.
  • Krysanne, a transgender woman, battles a terminal illness alone, until a crisis lands her with the right social worker.
  • Lawrence faces the overwhelming challenges of all caregivers, complicated by his search for gay-friendly nursing care for his longtime partner Alexandre.
  • Mel and Walter have lived discreetly, in fear of persecution, but they find surprising acceptance when they need it most.
