Listen to and watch this beautiful, gentle and inspiring short photo film by Magda Rakita featuring the amazing 76 year old Bridget Sojourner. Bridget shares her thoughts on life, work, creativity, style, being invisible and visible and ageing. The film captures beautifully Bridget's reflections, her emotion, her humour and an overwhelming sense of a life lived, and being lived. Just lovely.

We are waiting for Magda, the director of this film to set us up with an interview with Bridget, a huge anti-ageism campaigner and educator.  In the meantime, enjoy this truly wonderful and dreamy film —  'The Past Is Another Country' below.
