A human adventure
For more than 50 years, we have grown up with the cinema of Steven Spielberg, who projected on our screens the portrait of our humanity, lost between utopian reveries and nightmares tinged with hope, with a sensitivity that moved the whole world.
Beyond popcorn, this book explores the humanist thought of Steven Spielberg, weaving thematic links (family, war, democracy, human rights, ecology, etc.) between each of the works of his generous filmography, the better to grasp its admirable coherence, through the clarity of numerous quotations from the filmmaker, often translated here for the first time.
- The book contains more than 250 quotes from the filmmaker and his entourage, many of which are translated for the first time.
- The book is interspersed with several photos from Spielberg's films, supporting the author's point.
- This analysis, under the "humanist" prism, of Spielberg's career, is divided into five chapters (1- Family, 2- War and peace, 3- Democracy, justice and freedom, 4- Equality and fraternity, 5- Capitalism , technology and ecology) and includes his latest films, such as The Fabelmans released on February 22, 2023 in French cinemas.
