Coming to VOD tomorrow, Friday, June 17: RAIDERS!
Jeremy Coon and Tim Skousen’s chronicle of a lifelong obsession debuted at SXSW last year. Other screenings have included DOC NYC, Dallas, Hot Docs, Fantasia, Traverse City, Melbourne, Sidealk, Denver, Rotterdam, and Docs Against Gravity. FilmBuff now releases the film on major VOD platforms.
I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
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.
