Raiders!: The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made

(Jeremy Coon & Tim Skousen, U.S., 2015, 95 min)

Picture, if you will, a shot-for-shot remake of Raiders of the Lost Ark. The concept is outlandish enough on its own, ambitious beyond reckoning; now imagine that this project was helmed entirely by teenagers over the course of seven years. Just 12 years old when they began their amateur adaptation of Steven Spielberg's action classic, Chris Strompolos, Eric Zala and Jayson Lamb reconvened in 2014 to put the project to bed by tying up one remaining loose end: the notorious airplane scene, a duel to the death between Indiana Jones and a musclebound Nazi stooge.

Raiders!: The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made joins the young entrepreneurs, now grown men, as they reinvest in their childhood passion project and film one last scene. Featuring interviews with Eli Roth and John Rhys-Davies, this documentary is a celebration of creative dedication; a tribute to tributes, and an acknowledgement of a genuinely singular achievement in American filmmaking.

Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation



(Eric Zala, U.S., 1989, 100 min)



The Adaptation is a labor of love of the purest kind. Young movie buffs, inspired by Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, and Lawrence Kasdan, set out to reshoot the entirety of a major Hollywood blockbuster with a little more than 1/4000th of the budget of the "real" Raiders of the Lost Ark. The result is a transcendently comical, inspiring and inspired work of art that draws viewers in through sheer amazement at what can be achieved with seven summers of shooting and the collective willpower of a handful of friends.
