The Steven Spielberg Documentary you’ve been Waiting For is Here!

By Flora  /  28 Jul 2017 (Friday)

Explore one of the most famous filmmakers in the world, Steven Spielberg’s film journey is now documented in a feature-length documentary that examines Spielberg’s filmography in depth, revealing how his experiences fed his work and changed it over time.

Directed and produced by award-winning documentarian Susan Lacy, titled “SPIELBERG”, this unprecedented chronicle debuts same time as the U.S. on Sunday, October 8 on HBO. The documentary will also be streaming on HBO on StarHub Go And HBO On Demand.

Steven Spielberg has built an unrivalled catalogue of groundbreaking films over the course of his nearly 50-year career, having countless big-grossing and critically acclaimed films to his name. Many would have seen at least one, or two of his films in their lifetime. Some of his notable credits include Jaws, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Jurassic Park, Saving Private Ryan, The Terminal and the Indiana Jones film series.  

Charting the evolution of this iconic figure, director Lacy draws on nearly 30 hours of exclusive interviews with the director, who opens up about his bittersweet childhood and lifelong obsession with moviemaking, his precocious early work as a TV “wunderkind,” his rise to fame through an incredible string of blockbusters, his later forays into more serious dramatic films, and the personal and professional relationships he’s cultivated through the years.
