The true, decades-spanning tale of the greatest fan film ever made!
After Steven Spielberg’s classic RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK was released 35
years ago, three 11-year-old boys from Mississippi (Chris Strompolos,
Eric Zala and Jayson Lamb) set out on what would become a 7-year-long
labor of love and tribute to their favorite film: a faithful,
shot-for-shot adaptation of the action adventure film. They finished
every scene…except one; the film’s explosive airplane set piece.
Over two decades later, the trio reunited with the original cast members from their childhood in order to complete their masterpiece. Featuring interviews with John Rhys Davies, Eli Roth and more, Raiders!: The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made is just that: the story of this long-gestating project’s culmination, chronicling the friends’ dedication to their artistic vision—mixed in with some movie magic – to create a personal, epic love letter to a true modern classic.
