DOC NYC Co-Presents with Rooftop Films: Three committed fans of Raiders of the Lost Ark, who as kids spent seven years recreating the adventure shot for shot, decide to finish their low-budget epic decades later.


Raiders!: The Story of The Greatest Fan Film Ever Made (Jeremy Coon, Tim Skousen | USA | 95 min.)
NYC Premiere: When three Mississippi preteens set out to pay tribute to their favorite film in 1982, little did they know it would become an obsession that lasted three decades. Committed to making their own version of Raiders of the Lost Ark, they spent seven eventful summers recreating the epic adventure, shot for shot – with the exception of one scene beyond their scope. When footage of their project surfaces decades later, becoming a sensation, it reignites their drive to finally finish their low-budget masterpiece, no matter what.
