Rediscover your inner child with Highlights magazine doc trailer

Posted on

The new documentary 44 Pages is a portrait of Highlights magazine, which follows the creation of the cultural phenomenon’s 70th anniversary issue from the first editorial meeting to its arrival in homes. Along the way, the film introduces the folks who produce the monthly title for “the world’s most important people” — children.

“I was fascinated by Highlights as a kid,” says the documentary’s director, Tony Shaff. “When making this film I really wanted to tell the story of how a pop culture icon like Highlights is able to stay relevant and captivating, especially with shiny screens competing for kids’ attention. The film is a fun look at the creation of a magazine, but I think it really resonates with families and anyone who works with children. I hope it inspires people to be thoughtful of not only kids, but a bit more considerate in general, just like the passionate creators in the movie. For Highlights to open their doors to a film for the first time, I felt a great responsibility considering almost everyone has nostalgic memories of getting the magazine in the mail or reading it at the dentist’s office!” 

44 Pages is screening at the Texas Theatre in Dallas on Aug, 27 and opens at the Gateway Film Center in Columbus, Ohio, on Aug. 31. The film is also playing in Louisville, Kentucky; Detroit; and Portland, Oregon, among other locations, with more dates to be added. For information about screenings, visit the film’s official website.
