AFI Uncensored Documentary Screening

August 19 – YOUTH KNOWS NO PAIN

Straight from AFI-Discovery Channel SILVERDOCS and Cinevegas, is HBO Documentary Films’ YOUTH KNOWS NO PAIN, a documentary that follows filmmaker Mitch McCabe, the age-obsessed daughter of a plastic surgeon, as she takes a  journey through America’s $60 billion a year anti-aging world. For two years, McCabe traveled across America, visiting doctors and beauty experts, and living with a cross-section of characters from Minnesota to Texas who are attempting to “beat the clock” and stay forever young. It’s an intense and  exhaustive journey, and when it comes to an end, one wonders  whether the filmmaker herself hasn’t been seduced by youth.

A Q&A with filmmaker Mitch McCabe and some of the featured documentary subjects will immediately follow the screening.
