Meet the retirees and preschool children who live together
The Providence Mount St. Vincent retirement home in Seattle isn't just what retirees call home, but also where preschoolers spend most of their days. - photo by Herb Scribner
What happens when elderly Americans and preschoolers share a building?

The answer can be seen in Present Perfect, a forthcoming documentary that was filmed inside the Providence Mount St. Vincent retirement home in Seattle, which also houses a preschool.

The aim of the documentary which shows preschool children and retirees spending time together by participating in various activities, like reading books is to highlight whats truly important in life and find what generations can learn from each other.

What value does a person have to others throughout their life? the films website asks. Are we asking for the right contributions from each other? How do we measure and define a successful life? While this film doesn't shy away from confronting some difficult realities, it is ultimately a life-affirming story of hope and the power of human connection at any age.
