Director: Jon Spira


Tagline: 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 seemingly insignificant job would go on to colour their lives even four decades later.


Synopsis:  Actors and extras from the “Star Wars” franchise discuss the impact of the movies on their lives and careers.


Critic Quotes: “In telling a small story of bit players, the director, Jon Spira, captures a more universal picture of the droplets of fame created by a pop-culture tidal wave.” – Neil Genzlinger, The New York Times

A sweet, quietly funny, fascinating and contemplative study of 10 character actors and extras, none of whom had any idea back in the 1970s they’d forever be defined by the one or two days they spent on the set of a sci-fi movie.” – Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun Times

“… a slice of enjoyable nostalgia, capturing a sense of life as silly, surprising, regretful and all too fleeting.” – Charles Gant, Screen International
