The Jogger

Director: Robert Resnikoff
Screenwriters: Robert Resnikoff

Institute History

  • 1988 Sundance Film Festival


Sometimes the greatest horror is what lies just beneath the placid surface of everyday reality. The Jogger is an attempt, in visual terms, to come to grips with that nameless dread at the core of our comfort rituals. What happens when a man’s familiar morning run turns into a nightmare and his own neighborhood provides no refuge or escape?

— Tony Safford

While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
