Raiders! Trailer - Doc About a Group of Kids Who Remade Raiders of the Lost Ark Over 7 Years

Raiders of the Lost Ark is basically an action-adventure masterpiece. It's just a rock solid piece of cinema, from a filmmaker who was then at the height of his powers, distilled in the halcyon days of the 1980s. And that's why two kids decided to recreate it shot for shot in their backyard with their friends over a period of seven years.

The story of what happened then and what happened later is told in Raiders! - a documentary which delves deep into this incredible fan film and the way it has been picked up by the community and a startling reunion to finish this dream project. Here's the trailer.

These kinds of stories are always fascinating, especially for the many people who always wanted to make some kind of movie. Sometimes all it takes is passion, and that's what audiences have been responding to in screenings of Chris Strompolos and Eric Zala's fan flick.

The documentary will premiere at SXSW on the 16th of March 2015 and hopefully both it and the fan film will get some kind of VOD release in the future.
