Director: George Lucas
Available in Europe for the first time, FREIHEIT (the German word for freedom) was George Lucasí senior film project while at the University of Southern California. The three-minute film depicts a student, played by classmate Randal Kleiser (who went on to direct GREASE) escaping across the border from East to West Germany. The short is a rare chance to see the early work from a director whose impact on modern filmmaking is nothing short of astounding - starting in 1971 with THX 1138, and continuing on through AMERICAN GRAFFITI, the INDIANA JONES trilogy and, of course, the STAR WARS series.
