Synopsis: ​‘Deaners’ is the term given to proud, dedicated fans of the legendary actor James Dean. This film is a pilgrimage to the annual James Dean Festival in Fairmount, Indiana, the hometown of the legendary actor, as seen through the eyes of the cultural icon’s die-hard fans. This playful, yet earnest dissection of the Deaners’ subculture is illuminated in all its quirky, extreme glory. In between the carnival, parade, and look-alike contests, we get to know a handful of Deaners intimately. Each contributes his or her own story of what James Dean means to them and what compels them to make that trek to Fairmount each year.
