You can't get to wonderful without passin' through all right.

Wisdom. Who has it? What is it?
With the support of activist Archbishop Desmond Tutu, award-winning filmmaker and photographer Andrew Zuckerman sought out 50 of "the world's eminent elders" — all over age 65 — for their perspectives on life. The result of his efforts became Wisdom, comprising a book, a film, and a traveling exhibition. Below is a trailer for the project that features, among others, actress Judi Dench, musician Bill Withers, anthropologist Jane Goodall, painter Chuck Close, and iconic elder statesman Nelson Mandela.
