Promised Land


Against the backdrop of Watergate, Promised Land tells the story of the ill-fated meeting of two high school graduates; one seeking a way out of the desolation of his Idaho small town policeman's life , the other returning home to the same town after a three year prison term. A series of heroic events culminates in death for one and escape for the other, while portraying the moral confusion of the changing political times.


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.
