Synopsis: Photographer Seth Hancock was ASKED to make a documentary on a subject matter that meant nothing to him - Senior Citizens and Hunger. So he traveled across America to discover why senior citizens are the fastest growing group of people going hungry in America, why we treat senior citizens as second-class citizens, why he never cared about this issue and what can be done to make a difference in the lives of senior citizens in America.

She showed me

around the facility,

and let me know what it

took to feed thousands

upon thousands of

people on a daily basis.

Needless to say,

I was blown away.

But, by the end of

our conversation,

I felt so much better about

knowing where to begin.

And then she said, I think

there's someone you should meet.

You need to go talk with Carla.

And that's exactly what I did.

- My name is Carla Laemmle.

I'm 101.

I was a professional dancer.

Carl Laemmle was my uncle.

He founded Universal Studios.

We lived right on the lot.

It was wonderful, I loved it.

I was brought up and

trained as a dancer,

but somehow, acting came

kind of natural to me.

I liked it.

I liked acting.

The first movie I was in

was Phantom of the Opera.

I believe I was 14 years old.

(dramatic music)

- [Seth] Do you remember

your line from Dracula?

- I hope so.


Among the rugged peaks that

frown down upon the Borgo Pass

are found crumbling

castles of a bygone age.


It was about 30 years ago

that I became very ill,

and they diagnosed it as TB.

And I was unable to go out

and do anything on my own.

And I have to have meals

delivered some way.

And I learned about this

company that brought food

to the house, and that

was how it all started

that I was able to live at home.

For me, it's the only

way I wanna live.

- [Seth] How

important is that meal

that gets delivered

to you everyday?

- It's very, very important.

I couldn't do without it.


It's my life.

"Dear Ms. Laemmle, hello.

"My name is Adam Barnette

and I'm a big fan

"and admirer of yours.

"You're my favorite actress.

"I would love if you

would please sign

"the two enclosed photos for

me, and for my brother CJ.

"We'd appreciate it

and always treasure it.
