In observance of National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, please join the University of California, Merced for a discussion with Seth Hancock, director/producer of the film, "Leftovers" on Friday, November 19th at 3 pm PST.
About the Film: "The documentary Leftovers is about a journey across the country to understand why senior citizens are the fastest-growing group of people going hungry in America. This journey will change your thinking about aging."
From the Director/Producer: "When I was asked to make it, I initially turned down the opportunity because I didn't think it was sexy at all. But, those very reasons are why I decided to make the film and the journey was, and still is, eye-opening and life-changing. You don't think something like this can happen to you but it's a distinct possibility and as the socioeconomic chasm between the 'haves and the have nots' widens this is more and more a real possibility for the future. Many seniors are experiencing that now."
