“Before you know it” is a heartfelt observational documentary about aging, loss, isolation and finding one’s community. Its characters, isolated in their “golden years”, will grab your attention and keep it.
The second documentary feature from director PJ Raval enters new territories that have not been accessible to many before: the private lives of three gay seniors, in three different parts of the country. We see the struggles, the loneliness, the need to connect and tell their story.
Raval shows his three subjects in a warm and loving light, sympathetic in their isolation, he frames them as family. Ageism, love and creating your own community are at the center of this intimate look at gay seniors in their golden years.
