About the film:

World Premiere, 2024 Sundance Film Festival

In the misty forests of North America, a family of Sasquatches—possibly the last of their enigmatic kind–embark on an absurdist, epic, hilarious, and ultimately poignant journey over the course of one year. These shaggy and noble giants fight for survival as they find themselves on a collision course with the ever-changing world around them.

“Sasquatch Sunset is a film to compare with Planet of the Apes, or Watership Down, or even the days of silent cinema.”

—Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

About the filmmakers:

David and Nathan Zellner are Austin-based filmmakers who have written, produced, directed and appeared in numerous award-winning shorts and feature films. The Zellners have been a force on the festival circuit dating back to the 2005 short film Flotsam/Jetsam (2005), their first film to premiere at Sundance. Some of their other notable projects — all of which have played at Sundance — include the acclaimed short films Aftermath on Meadowlark Lane (2007) and Sasquatch Birth Journal 2 (2010), their first feature film Goliath (2008), the fable-like drama KID-THING (2012), the darkly comedic western Damsel (2018), and the surreal comedy Sasquatch Sunset (2024).
