This epic 15-hour journey into the world of the cinema takes a rich, wild ride through the history of the art form. Narrated by film journalist/historian Mark Cousins in a patter of Irish brogue, The Story of Film is based on Cousins’s 2004 book of the same name. Among the many personalities whose work is part of the mix are Wim Wenders, Stanley Donen, Robert Towne, Claire Denis, Gus Van Sant, Baz Lurhmann, Bernardo Bertolucci, Paul Schrader, Lars von Trier, Ken Loach, John Sayles, Jane Campion, Xie Jin, Agnes Varda, and Nicholas Roeg.

Cousins illuminates both well-known and obscure corners of artistic ferment. With a global view that finds gems from around the world, the series works chronologically, beginning with the birth of the medium, the era of silent films, and the spread of cinema. The coming of the “talkies” is followed by years of moviemaking in the shadow of World War II and the emergence of sex and melodrama in the 1950s. Fellini, Bergman, Bertolucci, and France’s New Wave presage Easy Rider and 2001: A Space Odyssey, which bring a new American sensibility that delivers Hollywood pictures like Chinatown and Taxi Driver. Bruce Lee, Bollywood and Steven Spielberg epics flesh out the 1970s, followed by inspiring film stories from the Soviet Union, China, and Iran, as well as independent thinkers like John Sayles and Krzysztof Kieslowski. Finally, Cousins delves into the adventures of Tarantino, the Coen brothers and Baz Luhrmann, an exploration of how digital technology has changed the cinema, the effect of 9/11 on moviemaking, and the future of film.
