The People vs. George Lucas

de Alexandre O. Philippe



George Lucas, angel or demon? Here is the question revolving around one of the most exalted and criticized figures in recent decades. Starting from amusing reconstructions fans have made of Star Wars and interviews with saga experts and fanatics, The People Vs. George Lucas outlines the rise, the fall, and the redemption of the North American director. The love he aroused with the original movies gave way to the greatest betrayal: digital touch-ups, prequels and that character hated by fans and adored by children named Jar-Jar Binks.


Alexandre O. Philippe

Multi-award winning director and writer specializing in documentaries on film. A regular presence in Sitges, in 2019 he visited the Festival to present Leap of Faith: William Friedkin on The Exorcist and Memory: The Origins of Alien.
