In 1964, British filmmaker Michael Apted made a kind of time capsule documentary about a group of 7-year-olds — then promised to return every seven years to document how their lives were turning out.  Amazingly, most of these now 56-year-olds were still participating in the project in 2012.  Of course, the novelty of regular people exposing their personal lives on camera has worn off considerably, and the sociological value of the project is debatable, but the series remains an intriguing and totally unique film experiment.  Worth Watching.
