Voyage to ManhoodPassage to Manhood
Our society assumes knowledge of the difference between a boy and a man; and the difference between a young, a middle-aged, and an old man. But men themselves often lack context to know exactly where they are in life, compared to some cultures. For Beyond 50's "Personal Growth" talks, listen to Al Polito talk about the different male archetypes and the heroic journey they go through.

Do You Remember
Summer Camp?

Ahh, memories of summer camp...singing "If I Had a Hammer", getting to third base with your camp crush, learning archery, bunk room raids, and tie-dye making. Going back in time, listen to Beyond 50's hilarious interview with Roger Bennett, the author of "Camp, Camp". He'll reminisce about America's great tradition of going away for summer camp. Roger will bring up the adventures and misadventures of many who went through the coming-of-age experience in the 70s, 80s, and 90s.

PG-50+ Movie Reviews
Beyond 50 only recommends films that are creatively responsible to reveal the finest qualities of the human spirit; allow you to think and feel deeply about life; make your heart soar; and champion human rights.

This is a historically accurate drama that focuses on the early years of the legendary Genghis Khan (pronounced chen gis) who conquered half the world in 1206. The rugged landscape and brutal battle scenes in the film were beautifully shot. It begins with his privileged childhood that was taken away with the poisoning of his father, the khan (leader) of their Mongolian tribe. He becomes a slave who grows up to steal a man's wife named Borte, a former concubine. You'll learn about the forces that shape his character to become a barbarian of great determination and strength to unite his people. (Available in theatres everywhere; Genre: Drama; Running Time: 2 hrs., 4 min.)

Encournters at the End of the WorldEncounters at the End of the World
Beyond 50 is a big fan of filmmaker Werner Herzog for his great love of landscapes and cultures. His new documentary is about community life in the Antarctic at McMurdo Station. The gorgeous landscape scenes serve as a meditation of nature: a land of fire, ice and solitude. Herzog interviews the researchers to show that the Antarctic is also a place of dreamers and eccentrics. (Available in theatres on June 11; Genre: Documentary, World History/Culture; Running Time: 1 hr., 39 min.)

The Man Who Skied Down EverestThe Man Who Skied Down Everest
Beyond 50 would like to congratulate Yuichiro Muira for being the second oldest climber of Everest at 75 years old last month on May 26. Another congratulations to a Nepalese man who climbed it the day before on May 25 at 76 years old. The film, "The Man Who Skied Down Everest" premiered in 1975 and won an Academy Award for "Best Documentary" was Yuichiro's attempt to be the first person to ever ski down the mountain. It was beautifully filmed with many contemplative and quietly thoughtful moments by him. He talks throughout the film his great reverence to the spirit of the mountain as he attempts his dangerous feat. (Available on video & DVD; Genre: Documentary; Running Time: 1 hr., 26 min.)

Hi. I am visiting to your blog first time. And I saw your post about the movie, Beyond 50. I haven't seen this movie yet. But I saw your sentence "He becomes a slave who grows up to steal a man's wife named Borte, a former concubine". Whether this is the movie idea or your idea, I could say that this is not true. I understand that the movie can be made different from the history. Just to let you know that this idea is true in history. He was not slave and Burte and he engaged when his father was alive. Their fathers made their engagement when Temuujin (Chingis Khan childhood name) was 9 and Burte was 8.
