A Story of Children and Film - Trailer (1 mins)
Mark Cousins' personal and poetic exploration of the cinema of childhood is the world’s first movie about kids in global cinema. It’s a passionate, poetic portrait of the adventure of childhood: its surrealism, loneliness, fun, destructiveness and stroppiness: as seen through 53 great films from 25 countries. A story of children and film is an eye opener, a landmark film and a celebration of both childhood and the movies.
