Abstract
Glavna tema ovog rada je analiza načina na koji se starost i starenje prikazuju putem Hollywoodske industrije, točnije, putem filmova i promidžbenih plakata, ali i kroz druge s filmskom industrijom povezane naracije. Starost je neizbježan biološki proces koji svaka osoba prolazi na sebi svojstven način, međutim, starost je ujedno društveno i kulturno uvjetovana, stoga kroz analizu prikazivanja starenja možemo dobiti uvid u društvene, kulturne i simboličke aspekte starosti i starenja. Poseban naglasak u radu je na analizi rodne razlike kod prikaza žena i muškaraca u globalnoj filmskoj industriji. Rad doprinosi području antropologije starenja, kao i antropologije popularne kulture.

Parallel abstract (English)
The main theme of this paper is the analysis of the ways in which old age and aging are represented by the Hollywood industry, that is, through films, promotional posters, as well as through other film industry related narrations. Growing old is an inevitable biological process that each person goes through in their own specific way, however, old age is socially and culturally conditioned and through the analysis of the representation of aging we are able to acquire insights into the social, cultural and symbolic aspects of old age and aging. Special emphasis is on the analysis of gender differences concerning representations of women and men in the global film industry. This paper contributes to the field of anthropology of aging, as well as the anthropology of popular culture.
