Lead Sponsor: Hollywood Foreign Press Association

Before he completed the latest installment of the Star Wars saga, writer/director Rian Johnson made his name with three independent features that teemed with activity and menace. His debut film «Brick,» a film noir set in the halls of a high school made a star of the filmmaker (and finally put the lead, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, on the map). Their second collaboration was the post-apocalyptic thriller «Looper,» in which Levitt played a younger version of Bruce Willis. For our “An Evening With…”, Johnson selected a film that had a formative impact on him, and it’s a George Lucas film that isn’t Star Wars: 1972’s «American Graffiti,» which is packed with characters and events. After Graffiti plays, Johnson will explore Lucas’ influence beyond «a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…»
