Elstree 1976

Documentary 2015 - 90 mins

In 1976, during the hottest summer on record, Star Wars was shot in suburban North London. Nobody involved had any idea how big the film would become, many couldn’t even remember the title.
Yet, for the extras and actors in smaller roles, their faces hidden in masks and helmets, this seemling insignificant job would go on to colour their lives even four decades later.
