From 2019 Doc Edge Superhero director Honigmann (Buddy, El Olvido), comes a film about the very eldest members of our society. Through the eyes of a diverse group of people we witness the wisdom, melancholy, and humour of an elite group of humans.

100UP is a film which investigates the will to live. It portrays a colourful selection of 100+ year old people from all over the world. With the clock inevitably ticking, these centenarians cling to life, set new goals with a joie de vivre, refusing to admit the betrayal of their deteriorating bodies.

Time is both their enemy and their friend. They have overcome diseases, lost partners, and some of them survived their own children. Nevertheless, these active, curious, and creative 100+ year olds are amazingly good at restarting every new day. 


…chases away the demons by showing tough, inspiring and resilient people who are full of life, never giving up.

This film is part of our Family/Whānau Category, proudly presented by Rei Foundation.
