Helpful Tech Tips: 

Ensure you have a strong internet / Wi-Fi connection 

Access the movie on your preferred device (smartphone, tablet, computer, or laptop) using Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Opera--do not use Internet Explorer


If you would like to watch the movie on your TV:

-Ensure you have installed the Eventive TV app [Apple TV, Roku, or Amazon Fire], open it, and you should see a 6-character code. 

-Next, go to https://watch.aarp.org/tv and login to your AARP account from your device, or make sure you're already logged into your AARP account. You must do this first before you can connect the TV app to your account! Then, enter the 6-character code into your account settings.

-Do NOT go to https://watch.eventive.org/tv, even if you see those instructions on the TV app. That webpage will NOT connect the TV app to your AARP account.

- You can also use AIRPLAY or CHROMECAST from your computer or handheld device. You CANNOT use screen mirroring.

BELOW SURFACE reveals the extraordinary power of community through an unlikely subject: a YMCA Aquafit class. The documentary gathers numerous moving stories of a multicultural and multi-generational Aquafit class to demonstrate how kindness and caring for others, combined with exercise, can be an antidote for grief, stress, and physical illness. The heartwarming honesty of the participants is a reminder of the power we all have to support one another.
