Give me the child until he is seven and I will give you the man.”

Starting in 1964 with Seven UpThe UP Series has explored this Jesuit maxim. The original concept was to interview 14 children from diverse backgrounds from all over England, asking them about their lives and their dreams for the future. Every seven years, renowned director Michael Apted, a researcher for Seven Up, has been back to talk to them, examining the progression of their lives.

An astonishing, unforgettable look at the structure of life in the 20th century, The UP Series is, according to critic Roger Ebert, “an inspired, almost noble use of the film medium. Apted penetrates to the central mystery of life.”

This seven disc special edition includes all eight films in the series to date: Seven UP7 Plus Seven21 UP28 UP35 UP42 UP49 UP & 56 UP.
