BBC: Beijing Beauties

From BBC NEWS: China's silver-aged revolution marches forward as the country hosts its first ever beauty contest for the elderly.

The Silver Age Beauty Contest is an inspired approach to addressing the issues of a rapidly increasingly elderly population.

The film follows remarkable contestant Jin Yingzi, a 68-year-old break-dancing granny from Beijing, as she body-pops her way through the contest's final stages.

Despite suffering from diabetes, Jin is at the forefront of a cultural revolution in China that has swept through her generation in recent years.
