THE PEOPLE VS. GEORGE LUCAS (2010): The passion the original STAR WARS trilogy inspires in its fans is unparalleled, but when it comes to George Lucas himself, many have found their ardor has cooled into a complicated love-hate relationship. THE PEOPLE VS. GEORGE LUCAS delves deep into Lucas’ cultural legacy, asking all the tough questions. Has Lucas betrayed his masterwork? Should he just have left the original trilogy alone? Is THE PHANTOM MENACE so bad it should carry a health warning? Utilizing interviews taken from over 600 hours of footage and peppered with extraordinary STAR WARS and INDIANA JONES recreations lovingly immortalized in song, needlepoint, Lego, Claymation, puppets, and paper-mâché, above all this film asks the question: who truly owns that galaxy far, far away—the man who created it or the fans who worship it?
Director Alexandre O. Philipe will take audience questions via Skype after the screening!
