49 Up: Ongoing Portraits of Life
Jan 31, 2007-- "49 Up" is the latest installment in Michael Apted's long-running 'Up' Series. In 1964, Apted began this documentary project with an intriguing concept: he interviewed 14 British children, all age seven, representing diverse classes and backgrounds. Then, at seven year intervals, for the remainder of the century, he would seek out those same 14 people and spend a day catching up with them. Together, Apted's films represent an extraordinary look at the structure of life in the 20th century.

Noted film critic Roger Ebert calls the series, "an inspired, almost noble use of the film medium. Apted penetrates to the central mystery of life." (2809 reads)
