Lifetime Award Harrison Ford & screening RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK Programme 2019

by Steven Spielberg Guests of Honour

Harrison Ford is one of Hollywood’s most successful actors. His career began during the ‘New Hollywood’ era at the end of the 60s playing small roles in films by George Lucas and Francis Ford Coppola. He became an overnight sensation after playing Han Solo in George Lucas’ STAR WARS (1977), film history’s first ever blockbuster. Harrison Ford rocketed to icon status for a whole generation of cinemagoers with his portrayal of the archaeologist and adventurer Indiana Jones in RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK (1981) and the franchise’s subsequent films. Harrison Ford will receive the Golden Eye in person on October 4 at 6 pm at cinema corso. A screening of INDIANA JONES – RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK (1981) will precede the award ceremony.

RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK: Renowned archeologist and expert in the occult, Dr. Indiana Jones, is hired by the U.S. Government to find the Ark of the Covenant, which is believed to still hold the ten commandments. Unfortunately, agents of Hitler are also after the Ark. Indy and his ex-flame Marion become partners in one action-packed adventure after another, ranging from wandering the snake pits of the Well of Souls to surviving the pyrotechnic unearthing of the sacred Ark.

Harrison Ford will accept the Golden Eye for Lifetime Achievement right after the screening.
