Dementia Friendly Screening - Driving Miss Daisy

The Third ACTion Film festival presents Driving Miss Daisy

We’re excited for the Good Host’s first Dementia Friendly Film Screening!

Daisy Werthan, an elderly Jewish widow living in Atlanta, is determined to maintain her independence. However, when she crashes her car, her son, Boolie, arranges for her to have a chauffeur, an African-American driver named Hoke Colburn. Daisy and Hoke's relationship gets off to a rocky start, but they gradually form a close friendship over the years, one that transcends racial prejudices and social conventions.

THIRD ACTion Film Festival's focus is to celebrate ageing and the accomplishments of older adults to help speed along an age-positive culture shift and empower everyone to envision their best third act.

LOCATION: The Glenbow - 130 9th Ave SE

RUNNING TIME: 100 minutes
