The Centre for Senior Citizens Initiatives: '20 years old me' documentary



The Centre for Senior Citizens Initiatives (Centrum Inicjatyw Senioralnych) premiered the short film “20 years old me” at the International Conference on Solidarity between Generations held in Poznan (Poland) on May 22-23, 2012.

Filmed and edited by volunteers of the non-profit organisation, the movie is a message from seniors to the younger generations. All the characters are anonymous Polish citizens over 50 years old, who imagine what they would say if they have a chance to meet themselves when they were in their twenties and had a few minutes to chat. 

Speaking directly to the camera, they all talk to themselves, about what awaits them, about what is important in life and what is not.

The 10 minutes documentary, available on several online outlets, was inspired by the 2011’s project "Dear 16-year-old-me" by the David Cornfield Melanoma Fund.
