Sometimes we meet people and wonder years later, “I wonder what happened to them?”
The “Up” series gives us a glimpse into that wondering. Michael Apted, a British filmmaker, started the series in 1964 with “Seven Up” interviewing 14 children – at age 7 – and telling their stories. Telling evolved into following this group every seven years and this fall we can see what became of those children – now 56 years old.
Often we define ourselves through our differences. Apted has learned that we are much more alike in our human experiences of love, loss, relationship and human longing than perhaps we understand. Watch for the “56 Up” installment this fall on PBS. (See story)
