“It’s such an honor to be sharing in book form my intimate discussions with Steven Spielberg, with a focus on his defining first ten years,” Bouzereau said. “This book reflects an inspiring journey, using Steven’s own words about his approach to cinema, and through formative stories behind the making of several specific films. The book also offers new and contemporary perspectives on the thematic that forged Steven Spielberg’s visual language as an auteur and storyteller, during the 70s, possibly the most exciting benchmark era in filmmaking.”
