Spielberg Meets with Sarkozy

I’ve been on assignment for much of the day, so I apologize for the lack of postings today…

Steven Spielberg met privately with French President Nicolas Sarkozy on Wednesday to discuss the crisis in Darfur.

Sarkozy also named the director an officer of the French Legion of Honor for his work in documenting the Holocaust and for his work in Darfur.

In February, Spielberg backed out of his role as artistic adviser to the Beijing Olympics, citing the lack of progress by China in influencing Sudan to alleviate the suffering in the region.

The visit to Paris followed Spielberg’s appearance at the Cannes Film Festival for the premiere of “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.”
