Film Director Steven Spielberg, Historian Doris Kearns Goodwin and "Lincoln" screenwriter Tony Kushner talk about the difficulties and excitement of bringing Abraham Lincoln to life for the screen in this streaming discussion hosted by The Richmond Forum. Using Goodwin's book "Team of Rivals" as the basis for their 2012 hit "Lincoln", Spielberg and Kushner at first found it difficult to distill 900 pages into a 2 hour film that would properly explore Abraham Lincoln's legacy. Finally, Kushner focused on the drama surrounding the passing of the 13 amendment, and with Spielberg's guidance (and an Oscar-winning portrayal by Daniel Day Lewis), Lincoln came to life for 21st century viewers. Watch them discuss this long process, and offer up plenty of insight on why Lincoln has proven to be one of the most compelling figures in history.
