The Story of Film: An Odyssey, written and directed by award-winning film-maker Mark Cousins, is the story of international cinema told through the history of cinematic innovation.
Lovingly researched and five years in the making, The Story of Film: An Odyssey covers six continents and 12 decades, showing how film-makers are influenced both by the historical events of their times, and by each other. It provides a worldwide guided tour of the greatest movies ever made; an epic tale that starts in nickelodeons and ends as a multi-billion-dollar globalised digital industry. Covering many medium-defining moments this exhilarating fifteen-hour journey is independent film-making at its very best.
Described as a love letter' to the movies, Cousins visits the key sites in the history of cinema; from Hollywood to Mumbai; from Hitchcock's London to the village where Pather Panchali was shot, and features interviews with legendary filmmakers and actors including Stanley Donen, Gus van Sant, Lars Von Trier, Claire Denis, Bernardo Bertolucci, Robert Towne, Jane Campion, Paul Schrader, Baz Luhrmann, Ken Loach and Claudia Cardinale.

An excellent series not only showing a huge range of clips from the history of cinema, but also making connections between them - at times the connections may be obtuse, but they are always thought-provoking. A must for anyone interested in a comprehensive look at the story of film.
