In the summer of 1971, film scholar and media theorist Gene Youngblood sat down in the grass under the Hollywood sign with some 27 year old kid named George Lucas for a local public access show on young filmmakers. What came out of it is an endlessly fascinating conversation between two forward thinking and brilliant minds. Lucas shares his frustration at the studio system, says how he thinks of himself as a toy maker and mentions he’s just then getting into making movies that have a story. It’s a wild ride and all the pieces that eventually lead to the creation of STAR WARS are there! Join us as we discuss all deep the topics and look at this amazing portrait of the artist as a young man!
