ARTE.tv broadcasts a documentary about the Indiana Jones saga with statements by Steven Spielberg and George Lucas. You can not lose this!
ARTE.tv, the free European cultural streaming platformon the occasion of the premiere of Indiana Jones and the Dial of Fate on Friday June 30, it broadcasts openly and free of charge a documentary focused on the film saga with testimonies from Steven Spielberg and George Lucas.
Indiana Jones: In Search of the Lost Saga tells how the Indiana Jones character was born and triumphed, revolutionizing American entertainment cinema and becoming one of the biggest entertainment icons in the world. The film managed to revive the adventure film genre, which by then had fallen into oblivion.
This documentary production, directed by Clélia Cohen and Antoine Coursat, addresses issues such as the fact that Lucas wanted to make three films from the beginning with the aim of recovering the soap opera stories of his childhood; or that initially the production company did not want to have Spielberg as a director due to his delays in his latest projects and forced them to sign an abusive contract.
Likewise, statements by Harrison Ford are included, according to which, five months after recording The Empire Strikes Back, the actor ended up with the script for Indiana Jones in his hands: “I read the script, spoke with Steven and I loved them. The two: the script and Steven. Thus, Harrison Ford became the protagonist of the saga, even despite the initial reluctance that George Lucas had, because having been in two of his films, he did not want him to star in “all” of his projects.
