/ Set for Life


Set for Life follows three Baby Boomers who struggle to recover from the devastating impact of losing their jobs during the Great Recession.

The downturn forces them to face questions that are relevant for all Americans: What defines my self-worth? What is my definition of happiness? Can I reinvent myself? Can I prepare for and accept change?

Set for Life aired on 60 percent of the public television stations across the country, including six out of the top 10 markets (New York City, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Washington, DC and Atlanta). Its broadcast by American Public Television  was funded in part by AARP Foundation, working to win back opportunity for struggling Americans, 50  and older.

On the film circuit, Set for Life received “Best Feature Documentary” at the 2012 Massachusetts Independent Film Festival, the Spring 2013 New Jersey Film Festival and the 2013 Northern California International Film Festival.  It was also an official selection of the 2013 Madrid International Film Festival.
