Director Statement


“A Great Ride” combines my interest in stories, photography and film, history, and health. I hope these women’s stories convey at least a little something to you about both the joy and poignancy of aging, and ultimately of the humanity, wisdom and quirky humor that might be one of the biggest perks of aging.
