The film’s genesis is a testament to how large that impact truly is. This tightly-focused documentary shows that what was once a little idea became something truly amazing which resonated throughout the culture.
Spanning over two years of filming, Back in Time is a cinematic monument to the immensity of the trilogy's fandom. By capturing countless hours of footage and interviews, the crew watched as the impact of the trilogy became apparent. Steven Spielberg, Robert Zemeckis, Bob Gale, James Tolkan, Claudia Wells, Lea Thompson, Christopher Lloyd and Michael J. Fox all give must-see interviews about their experiences with the movies.
The project’s origins are humble: what started as an amusing addition to a Bar Mitzvah video, just happened to resonate and get stuck in director Jason Aron’s head. The Back to the Future trilogy had been a childhood inspiration which led to his career in film, and the idea of the DeLorean time machine wouldn’t leave his thoughts alone.
Those thoughts blossomed into idea for a film which would delve into the impact of the iconic machine. A plan was drawn up, and a Kickstarter campaign was launched. Over 600 backers helped the team supplement the feature’s budget, and for more than two years, those funds helped Back in Time become something so much more than anyone involved ever imagined that it could be. Instead of just a look at the eye-catching DeLorean, Back in Time is a cinematic monument to the vastness of the trilogy’s fandom. In addition to the footage and interviews revolving around the time machine itself, the crew found that simply by delving into the impact of the trilogy, an epic journey began to unfold before them.
Shooting in London, England during a Back to the Future event, hundreds of attendees in 1950’s attire were captured for the documentary as they reveled in their shared love of the films; the crew got to set feet upon one of the prophesied hoverboards during a shoot at Hendo Hoverboards; and trips all across America took them from brightly-lit time machine-filled garages to the sun-kissed homes of some truly unforgettable faces.
Back in Time features interview after interview that simply must be seen.
