‘If you can do puberty, you can do old age’: a 90-year-old athlete’s perspective

‘I’m losing a little, but I’m using everything I’ve got,’ says the 90-year-old artist Leonard Creo, for whom old age means working much harder to achieve less than before. But all that effort is still an endeavour worthy of care and attention: Creo keeps his body active through racewalk training six days a week, and exercises his mind by sculpting and painting. Ultimately, Creo sees the possibility of happiness pragmatically, as just having something you want to do and doing it regularly. Moss Davis’s film shows this approach to life in action, and it seems to be doing Creo much good.

Director: Moss Davis
