Summer Blockbuster (errr...)

What if a group of passionate film buffs got together to remake classic movies targeted at a very specific audience? You'd get the Superman of Malegaon. It took a village in India to produce a comedic version of Superman in their local dialect replete with local references and jokes. The making of the film was fueled by people's passion for something different than loom-weaving which was the main means of making a living in this town. It gave people a chance to be a part of something different. They worked on this because they wanted to create something that would make people laugh. I loved it. It was touching and hilarious.
