"I thought as I was watching, 'well, if this is what it's like to be 100 years old (or 95 or whatever), then I DO want to live that long.'"

Kathlyn A, age 38

"In a world where we too frequently encounter negative images of aging, come book and film abundant with elders who, through love of and work with their particular craft, embody Browning's oft-quoted grow old with me the best is yet to be. In film, photography and oral history, Amy Gorman and Greg Young have captured the creative spirit of these remarkable Bay Area women."

"What surprised me was the degree to which I appreciated and could identify with the stories of the women other than my mother. ...each lady demostrated remarkable courage."

John Hearst
Son of Lily Hearst

"Still Kicking" is so inspiring! I especially loved Ann Davlin--I want to be her someday!"

Christianne L, age 32

"It is a truly wonderful, moving piece. It seems to somehow have healing qualities for people of all ages."

Kaye L. Dunham
Son of Frances Catlett

"This wonderful film captures the love of life, humor and self-acceptance that can come with age. When younger people start asking questions about what kind of old people they want to be, answers about how to get there appear. This is an important message."

I love it! Bravo, and again! May this be a light for many.

I saw "Still Kicking" with Frances and think it's just great. Although I always love your work and had every confidence that this one would work out well, it went way beyond expectations. You have a remarkable eye and you tune into the most poignant moments of the interviews.

Watched "Still Kicking" last night with my friend, Mari, and son, Nico. Both thought it was very good, often truly moving. The added section, Grace's Song, I thought was extremely well done. It's lovely to see the musicians, who are so "into it." The juxtaposition of Grace's movements, the music and the photos was brilliant. I loved the impressionistic look of it. And you used the photos so well with the lyrics...Mari, who knows and loves Grace, was in tears over it. Thank you for adding this part. It was a tremendous gift to me!

Just finished watching the film; it's GREAT. You should find a wide audience for it!
