Doc Edge - The Bubble

Run time:

Release date:

Welcome to America’s largest retirement community; a 32-square mile, sun-drenched, beautifully maintained, gated paradise housing over 150,000 retirees. The Bubble intimately examines the exclusive retirement experiences, beliefs and mindsets of six memorable Village residents. Interweaving these satisfied retiree existences with the anxieties of several residents from surrounding counties, the film reveals how those beyond the community’s sealed gates are being profoundly displaced by The Villages’ endless desire for land, water, regional and control. Director Valerie Blankenbyl offers viewers an engaging, provocative yet compassionate contemplation of American ways of life, ageing, and death.
