It was recently reviewed inAmerican Anthropologist and is screening in Spring, 2014 at the Ethnografilm Festival in Paris.

His new feature documentary, ‘THE AGE OF LOVE‘, which premieres in April, 2014, follows a first-of-its-kind Speed Dating event for 70- to 90-year-olds. Loring explores both the humor and poignance as thirty seniors take stock of aging bodies and still-hopeful hearts and confront the reality of seeking new relationships at the far reaches of life.
