DOCUMENTARY FEATURE / OFFICIAL SELECTION 94 MINUTES / USA / 2015 Directors: Jeremy Coon, Tim Skousen Producers: Jeremy Coon, Tim Skousen Executive Producers: Kyle Newman, Jonathan Coon Featured Subjects: Chris Strompolos, Eric Zala, Jayson Lamb, Angela Rodriguez In 1982, three 11-year-olds in Mississippi set out to remake their favorite film: Raiders of the Lost Ark. It took seven turbulent years that tested the limits of their friendship and nearly burned down their mother’s house. By the end, they had completed every scene except one: the explosive airplane scene. Thirty years later, they attempt to finally realize their childhood dream by building a replica of the 75-foot “Flying Wing” plane from Raiders in a mud pit in the backwoods of Mississippi…and then blow it up! This is the story behind the making of what is known as “the greatest fan film ever made.” This film contains some language and some violence.
