Stateside Independent presents the Texas premiere of 56 UP
In 1964, Michael Apted worked as a researcher on a new experimental television series called Seven UP, which explored the Jesuit maxim “Give me the child until he is seven and I will give you the man.” The original concept was to interview 14 children with diverse backgrounds from all over England. By asking the children about their lives and their dreams for the future, differences in attitudes and opportunity were witnessed. For almost a half century, Apted has interviewed the original group every seven years, examining the progression of their lives. They are now 56.
