Description

Director Susan Lucy (Leonard Bernstein: Reaching for the Note) delivers an artful glimpse into one of the most celebrated and influential directors of our time. For the first time, Steven Spielberg steps in front of the lens to open up about his parents’ divorce, his connection to his Jewish roots and his love for the camera. This is the story of a man whose films, such as E.T., Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark and Schindler’s List, changed the way we look at life through film. The documentary is rich with archival footage and interviews with family members and fellow directors Martin Scorsese, George Lucas and Francis Ford Coppola. This is must-see viewing for Spielberg fans.
