If you could see your family’s future, would you change anything? FAST-FORWARD follows four millennials and their parents as they travel through time to meet their future selves. Wearing an MIT-produced “aging empathy suit” and working with professional make-up artists, they grapple with the realizations, conversations and mindset required to age successfully. Ultimately, the families learn they have more control over how they age than they thought. Narrated by Rosario Dawson. Featuring Original Song by Andrew Bird.
