A STORY OF CHILDREN AND FILM | Mark Cousins | 106 min | UK | 2014


WATCH ON BFI Player

The world’s first movie about kids in global cinema. It’s a passionate, poetic portrait of the adventures of childhood – its surrealism, loneliness, fun, destructiveness and stroppiness – as seen through 53 great films from 25 countries.It includes classic movies like E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and The Red Balloon, also dozens of masterpieces (many directed by women) that are almost unknown.It combines the child’s eye view of Mark Cousins’ acclaimed film The First Movie, with the revelations and bold movie history of his 15 hour documentary The Story of Film: An Odyssey.

As such, A STORY OF CHILDREN AND FILM is an eye opener, a landmark film and a celebration of both childhood and the movies.
