From executive producer, Sundance and SXSW winner Jim Cummings (Thunder Road, The Beta Test), This Land is a film exploring six groups of Americans as they experience Election Day across the United States.
It premiered In Competition at the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, one of the biggest and most respected documentary festivals in the world, and now comes word that Gravitas Ventures has acquired the film for a release Sep 6.
On November 3, 2020, the most monumental presidential election in modern memory was held in the United States. Four years filled with partisan politics, constant news coverage, and a global pandemic led, finally, to a day that will go down in history. For some, it was indeed a meaningful day. Yet for others, it was a day like so many others, filled with the small trials and small victories that accompany daily life. This Land is a lyrical and poetic look at the lives of Americans from all walks of life. The film follows a Native American man as he grapples with his past, a same-sex couple on opposite sides of the aisle, a rodeo clown simply trying to be a good father, and more. This film not only captures history in the making, but explores what it means to be human.
Directed by Matthew Palmer and produced by Undine Buka and Brian Gagliardi and executive produced by Jim Cummings and Natalie Metzger, the movie will be available September 6 on digital platforms from Gravitas Ventures.
