What kind of elder care is in your future?
 
"The Journey Home" is a provocative look at the future of elder care in the US. This short film (10 minutes) is set in an elder care facility in the year 2030. Shot in HD black and white, with a surreal color montage, the story follows an older woman on her "Journey Home." It is a "thought film" that ends with a provocative question for the audience to answer.
