A Story of Children and Film
Director:Mark Cousins
Cert:PG Year: 2013 Length:101mins
Country:UK
Peter Bradshaw describes this film perfectly:

"Mark Cousins's personal cine-essay about children on film is entirely distinctive, sometimes eccentric, always brilliant: a mosaic of clips, images and moments chosen with flair and grace, both from familiar sources and from the neglected riches of cinema around the world. Without condescension or cynicism, Cousins offers us his own humanist idealism, as refreshing as a glass of iced water."

We hope to have Producer, Adam Dawtrey, on hand to explain more about all the film snippets that you will see and doubtless will want to see even more of.
