In 1964, filmmaker Michael Apted first interviewed 14 children from varying socio-economic demographics n England to investigate the maxim, “Give me a child until he is 7, and I will give you the man.” He’s returned to interview the original subjects every seven years to see how their lives have turned out. What’s been called “the most profound documentary series in the history of cinema” has discovered that the maxim is false; as we all know, life is far more complicated than that.
