The Center for Asian American Media's Memories to Light program is a national, community-sourced initiative to collect, preserve and share the home movies (on 16mm, 8mm, and super 8mm film) and experiences of Asian American communities from across the United States from the 1920s through the 1980s.
In celebration of the holidays and the premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens (heard of it?) CAAM recently shared this special clip from the Gee family movie collection. Shot at the Gee family home in Sacramento (circa 1978), the scene shows O.G. Star Wars fans Brian and Lynda battling it out as Darth Vader and C3P0.
The clip is set to The Tonight Show's a cappella rendition of the Star Wars theme. Check it out:
You are encouraged to share your own Star Wars-themed home movie clips on CAAM's Facebook page. To learn more about the Memories to Light project, visit CAAM's website.
