Elstree 1976 is a Canal Cat Films Production, made in association with The Works, Verax Films and British Film Company. The film was made in-between 2012 and 2015. Post-Production was funded by a highly successful Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign. The film premiered at LFF 2015 and was released by Film Rise in the USA in May 2016 on all platforms and received excellent reviews, including critics pick in the New York Times. Elstree 1976 is released by Soda Pictures in the UK on 14th November 2016.


ELSTREE 1976: 


Elstree 1976 is the new feature length documentary from the makers of Anyone Can Play Guitar. Director Jon Spira once again puts centre stage a group of people who were intimately involved with a pop culture phenomenon. This time, he takes a look at the community of British character actors who donned the costumes and uniforms in the original Star Wars trilogy. These people came from a wide variety of backgrounds and went on to have unique careers and lives.


This is resolutely not a 'Making of Star Wars' documentary. Star Wars is merely the common ground shared by these people and just a starting point for collecting the experiences of this generation of performers. It tells the story of six decades of British theatre, cinema and movie conventions from the perspective of working actors whose characters' fame often seems to eclipse their own.


The film explores the industry, the craft and the acting life. It reflects on what makes and sustains a pop culture phenomenon, how it feels and what it means to be a part of that legacy. Most importantly, it forms a portrait of a generation of performers and the British film industry, which facilitated the rise of the Hollywood blockbuster.
