Examining the most powerful movie images of the last decade, filmmaker Mark Cousins updates his classic 'The Story of Film with A New Generation'.

In Detail

Spanning from 2010 to 2021, including the recent pandemic, Cousins spins an epic and hopeful tale of cinematic innovation as he helps to uncover new ways of seeing and being in our eclectic and voluminous digital age.

Using a surprising range of works — including 'Joker', 'Frozen' and 'Cemetery of Splendor' — as launchpads to explore recurring themes and emerging motifs, from the evolution of film language, to technology’s role in moviemaking today, to shifting identities in 21st-century world cinema. Touching on everything from 'Parasite' and 'The Farewell to Black Panther' and 'Lover’s Rock', Cousins seeks out films, filmmakers and communities under-represented in traditional film histories.
