The Story of Film An Odyssey (Marathon Weekends)

Epic in scale and defiantly individual in approach, Mark Cousins' passionate ode to cinema is a wild and heady ride from the silent era to the digital age.

The Telegraph dubbed it "the cinematic event of the year" and for good reason; fifteen hours, six continents, a slew of fascinating clips and interviews, countless cinema masters and a trove of discoveries await.

Based on his best-selling book (of the same name), Cousins thesis is largely concerned with artistry and innovations in the form. His filmic adaptation opens with a bold proclamation that The Story of Film An Odyssey aims to "redraw the map of movie history that we have in our hands...factually inaccurate and racist by omission."

Staggering in its breadth and scope, The Story of Film An Odyssey is a landmark cinema event that is sure to delight casual movie lovers and diehard cineastes alike.

Two marathon weekends have been programmed during the season so you can view all 15 episodes over two jam-packed days.
