Marina's work has been focused on the ever-ignored people who are not young anymore, but they feel proud of themselves and absolutely not ashamed. The elder community needs to be seen and to be heard.Here we can find an ironic, humorous and positive way to see this collective enjoying life to the fullest, when society claims that old people are not valid anymore.
