FaceAge Video Installation

FaceAge, a video installation that explores perceptions of aging, will run Friday, October 13 through Thursday, Oct. 26 in the second floor lobby of McNeill Hall. It is free and open to the public during regular UNCW operating hours.

FaceAge is a three-screen film experience in which participants explore issues of identity, sexuality, and ethnicity through the lens of aging. This series of intimate interactions challenges perceptions, fosters introspection, and builds acceptance, awareness, and cross-generational connections.

FaceAge was shot at UNCW. The project was co-directed by Film Studies professor Dave Monahan, and former FST media specialist Nate Daniel. FST senior lecturer Glenn Pack served as director of photography. Current FST media specialist Aaron Cavazos co-edited the project with Dave Monahan. Film Studies students (now alumni) Bruno Rose and Caleb Ward participated as documentary subjects. FST student and alumni crew included: Mary Schweers, Sara Flores, Nate Pooser, Will Davis, Adam Fackelman, Richard Martin, Patrick Johnson, May Rogers, Jacob Joyner, Keegan Librick, and Joe Mason.

This UNCW event is the inauguration of a national tour presented by Penn State University and Barnes and Noble Education. More information about FaceAge is available at
