New Documentary “Nine to Ninety” Airing on PBS

Phyllis is 89 years old (now 94 at the time the film is being aired) and the story shared in this documentary about her and her husband, Joe, hits close to home for me. This touching and revealing movie gives you a sneak peek inside what a family goes through when they love their elder adults and the struggle that the caregivers, and the elder parents, go through.

Phyllis doesn’t want to be a burden to her family. She and Joe have big decisions to make.

“Nine to Ninety,” a co-production of Nine to Ninety LLC and Independent Television Service (ITVS), with funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, will begin airing on PBS stations this month. The film explores delicate moments of aging through the intimate perspectives of three generations of an Italian American family.

It’s so comforting to see the inner workings and conversations that families go through, which sound eerily familiar.

If you’re in the Pittsburgh area, the film will air on WQED on Wednesday, February 3rd at 7 pm.

Does this documentary strike a cord with you? What decisions is your family challenged to make? And, how are you dealing with these decisions?
