Lost Generation?

I think not. Not while that generation is making videos like this.

Submitted to the AARP* U@50 challenge a couple of years ago, where entrants had to

create an original video (your "Video Submission") not exceeding two minutes in length that describes how you envision your future and upload it to YouTube
this video came second. Why it didn't win I can't fathom out. Take a moment [1:44] to watch, it's brilliant.

See the Uat50 YouTube channel for all the entries and big thanks to econoom for the tip.
* AARP stands for American Association of Retired Persons according to Wikipedia. Their own site, even in the 'History' section, strangely fails to mention this.

The winning video must have been a 'cracker' to have beaten this one into 2nd place

I watched a few others, like 1st and 3rd place. I thought they were predictable and ordinary.

This video is simple, artistic and packs a punch. Should have been No.1 by a country mile.

That is a stunning bit of work on several levels.

Absolutely brilliant.
