Super Octogenarians


Episodic Information

Is 80 the new 50? Super Octogenarians track down some spunky seniors who are working way past their retirement age, and redefining the notion of active ageing. We travel across Asia to witness how these gutsy seniors are debunking the stock images we have of the old, and inspiring all with the tremendous energy they put into their extended professional lives. Eight octogenarians from Singapore, Japan, China, India, Indonesia, Taiwan and Thailand will show us that age is just a number, and the world is still their oyster. Eight of Asia’s most exciting photographers will also share the compelling worlds of these super octogenarians. These photographers will be collaborating with their octogenarian subject, and see the world through the eyes of the old. The end result will be a series of heartwarming and meaningful photographs detailing the lives of these super octogenarians.
