Home movies occupy an enormous part of our Texas film heritage. Since the 1920s, popular formats like 16mm, 8mm, Super 8 and video have captured our private events and public moments and helped us channel our creative impulses as amateur filmmakers. But they do more than just document our lives; our home movies continually reveal what we consider to be valuable, significant and worth sharing with others. This home movie from the 1970s captures the family during the holidays. First, children Mark and Meredith pose with Santa Claus. Then, Mark performs in a holiday play at school.
