63 Up - Michael Apted Q&A

Filmmaker Michael Apted discusses 63 Up, the latest installment in his groundbreaking documentary series, with moderator Tim Gray (Senior VP of Variety Magazine).  

Recorded at Landmark's NuArt Theatre on 12/6/19.

Legendary filmmaker Michael Apted (Coal Miner’s Daughter), an Emmy nominee, DGA winner, and BAFTA-winning director, returns with the latest installment of his groundbreaking documentary series, unmatched in the history of cinema for its astonishing and revelatory longevity. The original 7 Up was broadcast in 1964 as a one-off “World in Action” Special inspired by the Jesuit saying, “Give me the child until he is seven, and I will give you the man,” and featured 14 British children talking about their hopes and dreams for the future. Subsequent visits every seven years over six decades have documented the group as they grew up, became adults and entered middle-age, dealing with everything life has thrown at them in between. How have their lives reflected (or not) those earliest influences and the social class in which they were raised? Now, as the group reaches late adulthood, 63 Up is back to discover what they are doing—exploring retirement, facing mortality and reflecting on what the project has meant to them.  It’s a not-to-be-missed new chapter in a fascinating saga.
