Myth busting media stereotypes about ‘angry old men’ (and women) by showcasing research on stereotype bias and empowering older people to celebrate the highs and to come to terms with the lows of their lives – past, present and future! Social scientists and a film maker will come together to highlight assumptions and stereotypes about ageing and what research tells us about how these ideas become entrenched and what we can do to overcome them so that everyone, the elderly included, can lead happier and more fulfilled lives.
