Mark Cousins

Mark Cousins is an Irish director and occasional presenter/critic on film. He is a native of Ulster. He interviewed famous filmmakers such as David Lynch, Martin Scorsese and Roman Polanski in the TV series Scene by Scene. In 2009, Cousins and actress/director Tilda Swinton created a project where they mounted a 33.5-tonne portable cinema on a large truck and hauled it manually through the Scottish Highlands. The result was a traveling independent film festival which was featured prominently in a documentary called Cinema is Everywhere. The festival was repeated again in 2011. His 2011 series The Story of Film: An Odyssey is a 15 hour (15 episode) history of film, shown on More4, and later, featured at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival.
