Have you ever wondered how cinema has the power to transport us to different places, times and realities? Join filmmaker and writer Mark Cousins on a 40-day journey to discover how we think about cinema and filmmaking. Created at the height of the pandemic, when we couldn't explore or travel freely, this video series is an interesting look at all the aspects of making movies including style, ideas, emotions, the language of cinema and how films cross artistic and cultural boundaries.
