Coming of Age (2011. Directed by Celia Turley).
Faced with the prospect of spending their remaining years living alone, a group of women from across London have come together to set up 'OWCH' - standing for 'Older Women’s Co-Housing', the first project of its kind in the UK. This film follows two members of the project as they reflect upon the ageing process.

The GTC Medical Anthropology Film & Discussion Group explores the extent to which film can complement, enrich and further the study of medical anthropology themes, topics and methods. After watching selected clips, we discuss a film’s content and approach, and interrogate its capacity to support the analysis of issues relating to illness, crisis, health and wellbeing.
This term we focus on the theme of ‘aging’.
