Cool Videos: Lost in the Garden of the World, featuring rare interviews with Spielberg, Scorsese, and more!

LOST IN THE GARDEN OF THE WORLD, which aired only on New Zealand TV, is a 1975 documentary created by a group of Kiwi film lovers who wanted to experience the Cannes Film Festival firsthand. In doing so, they captured rare and fantastic interviews of some of today's cinematic legends back when they were just young upstarts - names like Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Dustin Hoffman, and Werner Herzog.

The 10+ minute segment featuring a young Steven Spielberg talking about a little film called JAWS is embedded below (his interview begins at the -6:13 mark). At the end of the clip (or if you hover over the vid and hit the menu button), you can select any one of the other segments to view. It's really fascinating stuff, particularly if you have a love for film history.

Extra Tidbit: Werner Herzog was living in a van somewhere in the hills when the documentary filmmakers broke the news to him that he had won the Grand Prix award at the festival (for the film THE ENIGMA OF KASPAR HAUSER). That's f*cking hilarious.
