The Passage

Director: Kitao Sakurai

Institute History

  • 2018 Sundance Film Festival


Phil is a wide-eyed mute on the run after escaping captivity. His scatterbrained ineptitude keeps getting him in trouble, but two agents who’ve been hired to recapture him always seem to be one step behind. The result is a series of misadventures that take the trio around the globe. Directed by Kitao Sakurai (The Eric Andre Show), we present the pilot episode of this aberrant series.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. 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.
