“At the end of the 1800s, a new art form flickered into life. It looked like our dreams. Movies are a multibillion-dollar global entertainment industry, but what drives them isn’t box office or showbiz. It’s passion. Innovation. So let’s travel the world to find this innovation for ourselves…Welcome to THE STORY OF FILM: AN ODYSSEY, an epic tale of innovation across 12 decades, six continents, and 1,000 films.” —THE STORYOF FILM
So begins this passionate and expertly guided tour through the history of moving pictures, told through the observations of award-winning writer and filmmaker Mark Cousins—an adaptation of his book of the same title. A commitment to such an endeavor is astounding enough, but that it also succeeds and excels as something more personal than mere survey makes THE STORY OF FILM all the more pleasurable. Incorporating an abundance of clips and interviews with both famous and lesser known directors, THE STORY OF FILM is comfort food for the cinephile: rich in history, satisfying in scope, and a base pleasure to watch throughout.
