Made during the Changemakercamp in Kassel. Between 9-14 Oct 2011 40 Changemakers from different countries got together to work on 5 different social issues. One group started a visual anthropological exploration of the lives of elderly people in Kassel, as a way of finding out more about what elderly people need to live at home. This was a question raised by a research group that designs products for elderly at the University of Kassel.
In order to find out what elderly people need, we firstly need to know more about their outlook on the world: what makes them happy, what do they wish for the future, what does their day to day life look like? The film about Frau Teichmann is made by 3 Changemakers, Olli, Marlies & Iris, who learned about anthropology, filmmaking and its purpose while making this film. We hope you enjoy it!
