WATCH – SPIELBERG TRAILER:
The film debuts at New York Film Festival on October 5 before arriving on HBO. Here’s the official synopsis from the festival:
Susan Lacy’s new film traces the private, public, and artistic development of one of cinema’s true giants, from his early love of moviemaking as a kid growing up in all-American suburbia, through his sudden rise to superstardom with Jaws, to his establishment of a film-and-TV empire with DreamWorks and beyond. All along the way, Spielberg has approached every new film as if it were his first. Featuring interviews with friends and contemporaries in the “New Hollywood” (Francis Coppola, Brian De Palma, George Lucas, Martin Scorsese); key artistic collaborators (including Tom Hanks, John Williams, longtime DP Janusz Kamiński); and, the film’s most touching presences, Spielberg’s beloved sisters and parents, Arnold and Leah. An HBO Documentary Film.
Susan Lacy is known for her work on the PBS documentary series “American Masters,” where she produced episodes on the lives of Janis Joplin, Maya Angelou, and Johnny Carson, to name a few.
“Spielberg” is available to stream on HBO starting October 7.
