Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation (co-star Chris Strompolos in person!)

“I saw and appreciated the vast amounts of imagination and originality you put in your film.” — Steven Spielberg

In 1982, Eric Zala, Jayson Lamb and Chris Strompolos began filming a shot-for-shot remake of Raiders of the Lost Ark. They were twelve years old. Six years later, the film was in the can. Twenty-three years later still, Everything Is Festival! brings you Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation, along with co-star Chris Strompolos in person telling the amazing story of this legendary movie. No other film experience will prepare you for this. This trio of filmmakers showed more tenacity, originality, heart, courage and skill than ten indie production teams put together, and all before puberty! SEE Indiana Jones grow six inches, drop into a baritone and grow facial hair! SEE Marion Ravenwood develop breasts! SEE the meanest pack of prepubescent nazis ever recorded on film! The Adaptation is like no other film you have ever seen — except, of course, Raiders of the Lost Ark!
