The People vs. George Lucas will use a
courtroom debate approach to explore the issues of filmmaking and
fanaticism around one of the industry's most famous franchises and its
creator. The innovative film combines filmmaker and celebrity interviews
with fan films - submitted via the film's site - to make this the world's
first digitally democratic feature documentary.
Basically a movie version of the2006 Star
Wars on Trial
book. Edited by David Brin and Matthew Woodring Stover, it was in turn
based on an article that appeared on Salon.com and to be honest
while the topic was suitable for a single article, as a book it got tired
pretty soon. So an entire movie with
Star Wars geeks fighting it out with
non-geeks? We may have uncovered one of Dante’s forgotten circles of the
Hell here . . .
