Film: A Good Age Episode Six

Today ICC Digital brings you the concluding episode of The Loopline Collection’s ground-breaking series ‘A Good Age’. Although made in 1997, over many weeks the series has strongly resonated with the issues which older people continue to suffer in society today, particularly during the current Covid pandemic.

The final episode ‘Fighting Back’ features the historic opening of the first Senior Citizen’s Parliament by Ireland’s President Mary Robinson and the episode gives a strong voice to older people who rail against a society that they perceive is throwing them onto the scrap heap. What’s new?
