TRIBUTE TO MICHAEL APTED
British director and producer Michael Apted has one of the most prolific and dynamic directors of his generation, known for the ongoing Up documentary series and lauded narratives Enigma, Coal Miner’s Daughter, and Nell. Apted is equally acclaimed for creating impactful films with a strong social message or ethical dilemma, including Gorky Park, Class Action, Gorillas in the Mist, and Extreme Measures. He won two BAFTAs for various installations of the Up series.
Michael Apted’s evolving masterwork, the Up series, has now reached its ninth installation: 63 Up. Unique in the annals of cinema and cultural history, 7 Up was created for British television in 1964, intended as a program that looked at education in the class system in England. Apted has revisited the group of young people he documented at that time every seven years—with varying degrees of cooperation as these kids grew up. UK 2019, 138 min Director Michael Apted
