Trailer for A Story of Children and Film

The trailer for Edinburgh-based filmmaker Mark Cousins’ latest film, A Story of Children and Film, has arrived online, just days after the film received rave reviews at the Cannes Film Festival.

In the film, Cousins uses footage of his nephew and niece at play to explore the different aspects of childhood in film around the world and throughout the history of film.

Premiering at Cannes, A Story of Children and Film was called “entirely distinctive, sometimes eccentric [and] always brilliant,” by The Guardian’s Peter Bradshaw. Scottish audiences will have a chance to see the film when it receives its UK premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival next month.
