Mark Cousins is a foremost chronicler of the new film canon, expanding our culture and understanding of cinema in innovative and diverse new directions. With The Story of Film (2011) and Women Make Film (2018), Cousins has provided us with new pathways for discovery and a more diverse appreciation of film. With his new project, The Story of Looking, premiering at Telluride, Cousins creates a more internal document: exploring the gift of looking and what it means to observe the world. In The Story of Looking, wherein Cousins is preparing for a risky eye surgery, the camera is turned inward, examining what it means to see the world, through the lens of cinematic language. Our conversation covers all this and more, in our latest entry of our Interviews series.
