About this event:
Ping Pong by Hugh Hartford & Anson Hartford
Call this old age, extreme edition: Eight players with 703 years between them compete in the Over 80 World Table Tennis Championships in China's Inner Mongolia. Ping Pong is a wonderfully unusual story of hope, regret, friendship, ambition, love — and sheer human tenacity in the face of aging and mortality.
This event is a collaboration with POV, PBS' award-winning nonfiction film series. (http://www.pbs.org/pov/)
