The EPFC presents a forty-minute documentary project created by local youth between the ages of 12 and 19 that explores the history of the home movie as an glimpse into life in mid-century Southern California and as a vestige that evidences the perpetuation of the American Dream. Filmed on Super 8, the documentary incorporates historic home movie footage obtained from local archives and personal family collections thanks to preservationists, humanities experts, and film archivists. Not only is the film a unique exposé on a fascinating epoch in American history, but it also delivers a unique perspective and intimate insights into the aspirations of those striving for the mighty American Dream thanks to the fresh perspectives of today's younger generation and the honesty and openness only home videos can afford.
