photo When Women Go Through Menopause, Where do Men Go?
The Other Side of the Moon
By Elizabeth Sher

Men 'talk back' about how menopause affects them, and air concerns about their own aging: sexuality, retirement, empty nest syndrome, and why some guys find the discussion so darned embarrassing. Interviewer Mal Sharpe asks a host of ordinary men and health professionals to explore the effects of menopause and aging on all of us in this humorous and engaging but highly informative documentary.

"Its power and poignancy come from watching men discuss the subject they find most painful, difficult and embarrassing to deal with, namely themselves." John Weil

"This funny, provocative film raises controversial questions about hormone use for men as well as women. Touching scenes of men's reactions to getting older and their strategies for successful aging as well as wonderful footage of the struggle and tenderness of couples aging together." Dr. Sadja Greenwood, MD, author of Menopause Naturally
