I'd Rather Stay (19 mins) is an intimate documentary film that explores the joys and challenges of growing older in one’s own home and neighbourhood. Told through the diverse experiences of 5 older adults, the film explores fear, resilience, and the importance of building more accessible and inclusive communities.
