Ruben Pardo has been a professional elevator operator for 40 years. At 75, he's the oldest one in Los Angeles. He learned how to operate elevators from the "old-timers" and still remembers going to the movie theater to watch other "old-timers" like Humphrey Bogart and Gregory Peck. In this short documentary by Dress Code, Pardo reminds us of the simple joys in life and lets us know that he's "on the first floor" and "the doors are always open!"

About Short Film Showcase:
The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's belief in the power of science, exploration, and storytelling to change the world. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of National Geographic Partners.
