In 1982, a group of 11 year olds, in Mississippi, began shooting a shot for shot remake of Raiders of the Lost Ark. It would consume the next seven summers of their youth.
They completed every scene, except one. The iconic airplane scene.
Now, in their 40s, the gang has gotten back together, to raise money for it, and somehow pulling off shooting it. This documentary unpacks how they pulled it off, with the adulation and commentary of some incredible film makers, and film geeks like Ready Player One writer Ernest Cline, Eli Roth, and Chris Gore, and even original cast member Jon Rhys-Davies.
A must watch, and this week’s weekend stream.
