The Sound of Lincoln

The SoundWorks Collection talks with Skywalker Sound's Sound Designer Ben Burtt about his work on Steven Speilberg's new film "Lincoln".


Steven Spielberg directs two-time Academy Award® winner Daniel Day-Lewis in “Lincoln,” a revealing drama that focuses on the 16th President’s tumultuous final months in office. In a nation divided by war and the strong winds of change, Lincoln pursues a course of action designed to end the war, unite the country and abolish slavery. With the moral courage and fierce determination to succeed, his choices during this critical moment will change the fate of generations to come.
