In 1981, when Steven Spielberg’s RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK was released, it rocked the worlds of a trio of 11-year-olds from Mississippi. Just as Spielberg was paying loving homage to the pulp heroes and serial adventures of his childhood, so too did Chris Strompolos, Eric Zala, and Jayson Lamb embark on a tribute to Spielberg — by remaking RAIDERS, shot-for-shot! It took eight years but they pulled it off, and their reverent remake earned them the approval of Spielberg himself.
The picture is perfect — well, almost! The boys’ adaptation was missing one vital but impossible-to-replicate scene: the fight with the Nazis at the desert airfield. The unearthing of the lads’ labour of love reunited the three after years of distance, and attracted documentarians Tim Skousen (ZERO PERCENT) and Jeremy Coon (producer of NAPOLEON DYNAMITE). With the two real filmmakers on hand, the adult Chris, Eric and Jayson get a Kickstarter campaign going to complete their opus. What follows is an intimate, revealing portrait of close friends, emotional conflict, and the audacity to act on one’s dreams — all leading up, of course, to the big Nazi death-plane getting blown up!
