The Directors

The Directors


The Directors” shines the spotlight on 91 of Hollywood’s finest directors, from Robert Altman to Edward Zwick, in 91 one-hour episodes, each focused on a single director. Straight talk and clips from the films of masters such as Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, James Cameron, George Lucas, Clint Eastwood, Nora Ephron, Tim Burton…. illuminate each director’s distinctive vision and work. They discuss their creative choices, careers, and influences, and give the inside scoop on Hollywood.

Guest stars like Tom Hanks, Harrison Ford, Natalie Portman, Morgan Freeman, Laura Dern, Liam Neeson, Jodie Foster, Meryl Streep, and Leonardo DiCaprio give insights into what it’s like to work with these film icons.

These uniquely compelling programs speak to the rich variety of style and substance in the directing craft. More than fifty years after Sidney Lumet’s first movie,“Twelve Angry Men,” opened in 1957, the master of emotional, socially relevant films like “Dog Day Afternoon” and “Network” was still working. Clint Eastwood tells brutally harsh stories of injustice and redemption (“Unforgiven” and “Mystic River”) yet shines in comedy and romance (“The Bridges of Madison County”), just as the breezy romantic comedies and coming of age films of Rob Reiner, like “When Harry Met Sally” and “Stand By Me,” contrast with hard-hitting dramas like “A Few Good Men”. And Steven Spielberg proves that blockbusters like “Jaws” and the “Indiana Jones…” franchise are not inconsistent with powerful films with a social conscience, like “Schindler’s List” and “Amistad”.

This award winning series shows what it takes to be a director.

Produced by Media Entertainment Inc. in cooperation with the prestigious American Film Institute, offered by Chilmark Programs Inc. 91 one-hour episodes.
