Program Description

Event Details

Two young filmmakers, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas,  changed the way the movie industry made movies. Spielberg’s Jaws and Lucas’ Star Wars  helped launch the careers of the most influential directors of our time. Whether they were making films together (Indiana Jones) or separately (E.T., Jurassic Park, The Empire Strikes Back), they introduced the age of the “modern blockbuster,” which featured elaborate special effects and thrilling spectacle. Film historian Brian Rose explores their four decades of filmmaking and how they changed the movies.
