    Unseating the assumption of old age dependency, We're Still Working reveals the extent to which families, communities and India itself rely on older people’s work. Shot in India, in urban Tamil Nadu, rural Rajasthan and tribal Maharashtra, the film makers argue that people aged over 60 are shouldering the burden of India’s economic development by providing low-cost labour that makes India competitive in the global market. Yet older people’s work and their moral and legal rights as workers, citizens and people remain unacknowledged.
