The Story of Film: A New Generation

Northern Irish film critic and documentarian Mark Cousins turns his curious eye and capacity for wonder to the 21st century, considering films such as Moonlight, Parasite, I Am Not a Witch, The Farewell, Black Panther and Lover’s Rock, and reflecting on how filmmaking has innovated and evolved. Enchanting, and educational.




Ten years after the release of The Story of Film: An Odyssey, a 15-hour rumination on filmmaking in the 20th century, Mark Cousins returns to take a look at world cinema from 2010 to 2021 and what themes, visual languages and technologies have emerged in that time.
