Raiders!: The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made @ Bryn Mawr Film Institute | Thursday, September 22
This double bill at the Bryn Mawr Film Institute puts the focus on the fans. Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation is a shot-for-shot remake of the Indiana Jones adventure — but filmed by three very devoted 11 year olds. They got every scene, over seven summers of shooting, except the exploding airplane. More than 20 years later, the three met up with their original cast to finish the movie. Raiders!: The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made is a documentary about the making of the adaptation. Got it? Filmmaker Eric Zala will do a Q&A after the screening.
