At 18, we just wanted a sex object. At 75 you may still want sex, you’re not sure you’re going to get it, but you’re looking for comfort.

What do you think of when you think of senior citizens? Elders shuffling around on zimmer-frames between bingo games and tea breaks? Well, it’s time to re-evaluate these stereotypes!

Backseat Bingo is an animated short film that was entered into San Francisco’s Jewish Film Festival and explores what romance means to senior citizens. The participants discuss relationships, dating and desires; both for sex and companionship.

Maybe growing old isn’t do bad after all!
