I believe that the secret to a long, happy life lies in simplicity and beauty and this short film reaffirms that belief.
Shot in Fire Island, New York, this inspiring short film (4 min. 23 sec) created by artist and filmmaker Julia Warr captures the secrets of eternal youth as Maia Helles, a Russian ballet dancer turns 95 but still remains resolutely independent, healthy and as fit as a forty year old.
“My secret to long life is simplicity, and work, and enjoyment.”
Maia’s beauty shines not only from within, but inhabits her home and everything she makes. She’s my kind of role model.
