Autumn Gold

.

AUTUMN GOLD tells the life-affirming story of five athletes in their preparation for the Track and Field World Championships. Their toughest challenge is their age: these potential world champions are between 80 and 100. It is a competition against age and other hurdles of life. They want to stand on the podium for one last time. Who will make it to Finland? Who will fight to the bitter end? A story of winning and losing, of setbacks and triumphs. A homage to life how it can be: not smooth and wrinkle-free but full of humor and determination.

Press

  • Press & Reviews
    "A celebration of life force! A movie filled with joy of - and for - LIFE. Autumn Gold explores the deep drive of the human spirit that exists in all of us, no matter what our age is. The wit, the triumphs, and the human desire to challenge oneself are all blended together to examine the quest for a fulfilled long life. The visually captivating and mythical ending of the movie is not just extraordinary but inspiring to us all. I loved it."
