    Director/producer Tariq Jalil made this guerilla-style documentary about the Star Wars fan campout phenomenon before the opening of Episode 1- The Phantom Menace.

    The score is mostly fillers and transitions, but there are some nice emotional moments to play when the film turns its attention to stories specific to certain fans, many of whom draw their feelings of belonging and self-worth from being members of the Star Wars extreme fan community. Tariq found some extraordinary people among the larger throngs of fan and trend followers. The mad rushes on toy stores are a bit frightening, too.
