A Story of Children and Film (2013)

Documentary 1h 46m

Mark Cousins draws on 53 films from around the world and from throughout the history of cinema to demonstrate the affinity between film and childhood. It’s a passionate, poetic portrait of the adventure of childhood: its surrealism, loneliness, fun, destructiveness and stroppiness, and his reflections are anchored in a real-life situation - his own niece and nephew at play. A rich and delightful examination of the way films have viewed children.
