We all have elderly people in our lives. Maybe they are family members you visit for a few hours each week or neighbors you see sitting on their porches, but either way, they aren’t that different from 98-year-old Mary Tony. Like many senior citizens, she suffers from intense loneliness. While her days are filled with engaging activities and good friends at a local senior center, her evenings are quite different.
Voyager, a production house in Brooklyn, New York, recently created a short film called “Junk Mail” that is an intimate look at Mary’s life. Some parts might make you laugh, others are sure to make you cry, but it’s something that everyone should take the time to watch. While the elderly might be old, they should not be forgotten.
