We are excited to announce that we have completed the fine cut of Set for Life, our documentary about three Baby Boomers who struggle to recover from the devastating impact of losing their jobs in the Great Recession. Now older than 50, they strive to hang onto their homes, health insurance and hope. Experts, animated infographics and brief clips from additional unemployed boomers across the United States set the three main characters’ stories in a broader national context. They each find a way to cope with the drastic effects of unemployment on their lives, but their futures are no longer secure, and they have lost their confidence in the American Dream.
Brian King, one of our hundred Over 50 and Out of Work interviewees, is the narrator of Set for Life.
Over the next few weeks, we will be adding the finishing touches to the fine cut, so stay tuned for more updates. Click here to watch a two-minute trailer for the film.
We are thrilled and honored that Set for Life has been chosen as one of the finalists in the Roy Dean Summer Film Grant! More info about will be posted on the From the Heart Productions site in August.
