lost hopeYahoo is running an AP story by Kathy Hanrahan, entitled Mississippi Filmmakers Parody 'Star Wars', about Star Wars Episode III: A Lost Hope, a parody of the new Star Wars movie made by a group of filmmakers from McComb, Mississippi.

The film is a six-minute short written and directed by Todd Bullock. The trailer is being hosted at iFilm.com for anyone interested in checking it out. As with most things coming out of the Deep South, the short film for all its silliness (and the AP article about it) still manages to comment on racial issues that I think are sometimes oversimplified or just plain lost in Hollywood and on the never-desegregated regions of the States.
