In literary theory, the Bildungsroman is a novel in which we witness the formation of an individual who undergoes a profound change due to knowledge gained through experience. Generally speaking, the protagonist in such works is a young member of society and the shift in consciousness that occurs during the story will transform them and hasten their advancement into adult understanding of the world in which they live. With Magic & Loss: Coming of Age Onscreen, we present a collection of films from around the globe intended to draw parallels between the literary convention of the Bildungsroman and the celebrated coming-of-age narrative as it exists in the cinema. Since coming-of-age stories are historically among the most commonly produced in the film industry of any country, our attempt is not intended to be viewed as a comprehensive overview, rather a concentrated journey through a theme as expressed by some of the greatest visionaries of the cinema.
