This instalment focuses on three major developments in the 1970s that dramatically influenced world cinema.

Hollywood blockbusters like The Exorcist (1973), Jaws (1975) and Star Wars (1977) permanently changed American cinema.

This period also saw the rise of Asian films in the world market, specifically action spectacles coming from Hong Kong. Some of the most popular starred martial artist Bruce Lee.

Meanwhile, changes in Indian cinema led to the thriving industry known as Bollywood.

About The Story of Film
The Story of Film: An Odyssey is a British documentary film series about the history of cinema, presented in 15 x 1-hour chapters. Adapted from his book, Northern Irish critic and filmmaker Mark Cousins narrates with infectious passion, selecting original film clips best seen on the big screen.
 
Each month, we screen one episode from the series, accompanied by some of the films he analyses. Whether you think you know it all, or want to learn more, The Story of Film: An Odyssey is a journey for everyone who loves cinema!

'It's wildly ambitious, often extremely good, occasionally maddening, and always stimulating’ – Boston Globe
