Documentary, 87 minutes, 2009, Produced & Directed By Aron Gaudet and Gita Pullapilly

A deeply moving film about life and how to live it. Beginning as an idiosyncratic story about three troop greeters - senior citizens who gather daily at a small airport to thank American soldiers departing and returning from Iraq - the film quickly turns into an unsettling and compassionate story about aging, loneliness, war and mortality. The film carefully builds stories of heartbreak and redemption, reminding us how our culture casts our elders, and too often our soldiers, aside. Regardless of our politics, "The Way We Get By" celebrates three unsung heroes who share their love with strangers who need and deserve it.
