From the producers of Dogtown & Z-Boys and Riding Giants comes The Achievers: The Story of the Lebowski Fans, the long-awaited documentary based on the fans of Joel and Ethan Cohen’s The Big Lebowski, the first cult film from the digital age. While vending at a tattoo convention in 2002, Will Russell and Scott Shuffitt began quoting lines from The Big Lebowski and felt an instant bond with others who quoted back; in a matter of seconds the idea of a festival began. “The concept was simple: gather fans in a bowling alley and let them loose to bowl, drink White Russians, dress in costume and watch the movie together.” The Achievers: The Story of the Lebowski Fans chronicles the first festival and how this one day event became an international phenomenon attracting thousands and selling out venues from Louisville to London. Director Eddie Chung takes a five year look at the festival and its attendees, known as Achievers, a name which is self-applied, chronicling the development of lifelong friendships and extraordinary behavior at the festival, which in itself has become a show. Told through a compelling combination of interviews from the creators of Lebowski Fest, Jeff Bridges, festival footage and clips from “The Big Lebowski,” The Achievers: The Story of the Lebowski Fans is an engrossing and hilarious documentary film.More Info
