Children of Men is Alfonso Cuarón's greatest filmic achievement to date and constitutes an auteurist statement in the way that it demands that its director be taken seriously. It addresses weighty issues and sets out to provide an account of the most pressing problems facing humanity: environmental destruction (symbolised by infertility), mass migration, and the tyranny within democratic states. Children of Men is an ideal model case study for a transnational film. It meets the criteria in the majority of the categories that the author has identified in the introduction as most pertinent to attempt to theorise transnational cinema. She examines the documentary that accompanies the film on the DVD and Blu-ray releases of Children of Men, The Possibility of Hope, and explores its relationship to the film. She considers the function of a documentary which features some of the most popular academics in their fields.
