Life At is a compelling observational documentary series that chronicles the lives of a select number of children as they grow from infancy to adolescence. Every two years, the filmmakers revisit these children and their families to gain an in-depth snapshot of their lives, examining what it takes to give a child the best chance in life. Recording the most important life events as they unfold, and examining how children negotiate life in our rapidly changing world, the series reveals sweeping changes to the notion of childhood, particularly in how children are spending their time. So how does this impact their independence and creativity, both proven indicators of success in later life? As the lives of the eight children unfold, Life At rigorously examines the complex question: what it is that makes us all thriving, independent, and creative human beings?
