Movie Summary

Director:
Mark Wexler
Released:
2009
Rating:
R
A cell lives an average of 5 minutes. A hummingbird for 5 years. Right now, humans live for about 75 years. What would it mean to live forever? Like most baby boomers, Mark Wexler was freaked out about getting old. When he turned 50, he decided to embark on an epic tour to find out about aging. HOW TO LIVE FOREVER documents Wexler's journey as he sets out to answer the questions: Is eternal life possible? And is it desirable? Discussing these issues with a fascinating array of people from futurist Ray Kurzweil to a 101-year-old chain-smoking marathoner to a laughter yoga expert, Wexler reveals an incredible series of stories and insights about youth, aging, and death. With intelligence, humor, and warmth, HOW TO LIVE FOREVER offers a thoughtful, nuanced inquiry into what it is that gives our lives their meaning.
