What is the close connection between film and childhood?

A rich and delightful examination of the way films have viewed children. Filmmaker Mark Cousins draws on 53 films from around the world and from throughout the history of film to demonstrate the affinity between film and childhood. His reflections are anchored in a real-life situation: his own little niece and nephew at play. As the film demonstrates powerfully, no art form has looked more at kids than film.
