What family means to the world’s longest-married couple after 88 years together

Kartari Chand, aged 101, and Karam Chand, 109, have the world’s longest known marriage. After 88 years together, their relationship and their family – including eight children, 26 grandchildren and 27 great-grandchildren – remain at the heart of their shared happiness. Kartari and Karam married in India before moving to the north of England in 1969, where the rest of the Chand family still holds Sikh values dear, including the belief that one’s parents come before all else but God. Charming and touching, the UK director Glen Milner’s Elders is a cheerful portrait of family, immigration, love and mutual support.

Director: Glen Milner
