I am looking for what you think are the best videos/films that capture the truth of the caregiving experience. Not looking for idealized stuff but rather material that is authentic and largely unvarnished. I am very interested in content that makes use of the voices of the people involved in partnering rather than lectures by “specialists.”
Julie Winokur’s videos (Sandwich Generation, Losing Herbie) are along the lines of what I am searching for.
Millions of middle-aged Americans are caring for their children as well as their aging parents. When filmmaker-photographer pair Julie Winokur and Ed Kashi took in Winokur’s 83-year-old father, they decided to document their own story.
