"Look At Life" is a short student film by George Lucas, produced for a course in animation while Lucas was a film student at USC Film School. The film's running time of exactly one minute was required by the course. This was the first film made by George Lucas. ["A Legacy of Filmmakers: The Early Years of American Zoetrope" feature on DVD release of "THX 1138"]

The film is a montage of various iconic photographs focusing mostly on common themes from youth culture in the 1960s, with a frenetic percussion soundtrack. The imagery includes photographs of Martin Luther King Jr., Nikita Kruschev, American race riots, the Ku Klux Klan, Buddhist monks, and bodies of dead soldiers. The only narration in the film is a man's voice yelling the text of Proverbs 10:12, "Hate stirreth up strife, while love covereth all sins." The film ends with written text: "ANYONE FOR SURVIVAL", followed by "End" and "?".

The film is included in the documentary "A Legacy of Filmmakers: The Early Years of American Zoetrope", which was released on the DVD edition of Lucas's first feature film, "THX 1138".
