Freiheit: George Lucas' Very First, Very Worst Film

Many years before George Lucas decided it was ok to lie to the children of America, convincing them that tree-dwelling teddy bears with bronze age technology could really decimate the most capable military force in the galaxy, he started his directorial career with this short film about, um, freedom?

Titled Freiheit, this 1966 short film follows a young, bespectacled man dressed like Michael Douglas in Falling Down as he attempts to tag a white box in an open field surrounded by guards armed with automatic weapons. It does not end well. The young man really should have take a lesson in how not to be seen.
