Running Time: 37 minutes
When George Lucas created Star Wars, his express purpose was to tap into the wonder and enchantment he saw fading in the (Post-)Modern Era. Seeking to create a “good, wholesome adventure,” he worked to inject an antidote to the creeping cynicism growing out from the battles and scandals of the late 1960s and early 1970s.
Join Matt and John as they discuss what comes across from Lucas' intent, what marks he left on the trail to his works' deeper meanings, and the impact they see from what he achieved. Born in the era of Studio 54 and disco, how did a small film grow to such an impactful cultural work?
John Mills and Matthew Rushing
