Opening tomorrow, **How to Live Forever** is an upbeat documentary about sucking the marrow out of life, even when the opening segment features the Funeral Director’s Convention in Las Vegas.
The son of Oscar winning cinematographer Haskel Wexler, writer/director/host Mark Wexler has created a quirky documentary about the meaning of life on planet Earth. From nursing homes in rural America to the peaceful gardens of Okinawa, Wexler discovers that the meaning of life is to enjoy life.
Wexler learns many life lessons, samples exotic low calorie food and is given a lesson in “Laughing Yoga,” which is worth the price of admission. Of course, the ** the Today Show’s** Willard Scott will be involved in such a project, Phyllis Diller delivers some zingers about senior citizen birth control and writer Ray Bradbury discusses the importance of passion. While **How to Live Forever** wraps up on a somber note
(dealing with Mark Wexler’s grief over the loss of his artist/mother), the closing credits concludes on a upbeat, optimistic note.
