Give me the child until he is seven, and I will show you the man – childhood around the world in Seven up


Petraitis, Marian (2018). Give me the child until he is seven, and I will show you the man – childhood around the world in Seven up. In: Visible Evidence XXV, Bloomington, Indiana, USA, 8 August 2018 - 11 August 2018, 1-9.

Abstract

[My lecture] will focus on the longitudinal documentary Seven Up and its international follow-ups. [...] While documentary filmmakers already began to use the term «longitudinal studies» for their own projects in the early 1980s, the term «longitudinal documentary» (or long doc) was prominently introduced to film studies by Richard Kilborn and his book Taking the Long View in 2010.
Two projects in particular are repeatedly considered as pivotal: The Children of Golzow, (or Die Kinder von Golzow), an East German documentary series by Winfried and Barbara Junge about children from a village in Brandenburg close to Berlin that began in 1961 and finished in 2007; and the British documentary series Up which started in 1964 with the film Seven Up and follows the lives of 14 British children.
