“Making this movie has been one of the most trying, rewarding, frustrating and eye opening experiences of my life and it was well worth the journey” – Seth Hancock (director)
One of the most powerful and thought-provoking documentaries of the year, Leftovers, coming to VOD and DVD this Summer.
Photographer Seth Hancock was ASKED to make a documentary on a subject matter that meant nothing to him – Senior Citizens and Hunger. So he traveled across America to discover why senior citizens are the fastest growing group of people going hungry in America, why we treat senior citizens as second-class citizens, why he never cared about this issue and what can be done to make a difference in the lives of senior citizens in America.
“…There are Americans in this county who are 60 years of age and older who are going hungry and this is the richest nation on earth…they don’t have the funding to buy the food, buy their medicine, pay their rent and pay their utility bills…they have nothing left over, nothing left over for food…six million seniors going hungry every day is a national disgrace.”
Made with the support of the Meals on Wheels Research Foundation, Leftovers is unarguably the most important film you can see this year.
See it on VOD 7/11 and 8/29 on DVD.
