“Cyber-Seniors” — a humorous and heartwarming documentary about a program begun by two high school students to help residents of a retirement community become more computer literate — will be shown at Ithaca College on Tuesday, Sept. 6. The 7 p.m. screening in Textor 102 is free and open to the public.
Focusing on a group of senior citizens who take their first steps into cyber-space under the tutelage of teenage mentors, the film expertly renders a thought-provoking look at a spirited group of men and women who are enriched by digitally re-connecting with their families and each other.
Cyber-Seniors: Connecting Generations is a nonprofit organization focused on supporting communities who wish to start their own Cyber-Seniors program. A discussion via Skype with Tess Finlay, the organization’s communications and program director, will follow the screening.
