Sasquatch Sunset

Sasquatch Sunset

9:00pm - Tuesday, May 21, 2024

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. Starring Riley Keough and Jesse Eisenberg, acclaimed directors David and Nathan Zellner (KUMIKO, THE TREASURE HUNTER) bring you the greatest Bigfoot story ever told.

"[The Zellners have] previously bent reality to fit their fantasies; now, in trimming fantasy to resemble reality, they display a deepened artistic purpose." (New Yorker)

"A little bit of Bigfoot lore goes a long way (it really does get gross), but the beauty of 'Sasquatch Sunset' is how it depicts humans as mysterious intruders in their world, not the other way around." (Toronto Star)

"Silly, surreal, and sometimes insightful, Sasquatch Sunset has a lot to say about life, nature, and what it means to simply exist." (Screen Rant)

"Are we looking for the human in the Sasquatch? Or for the Sasquatch in us? The movie works either way, but in its refusal to hew to a familiar plot trajectory, it holds up a mirror to our own narcissism." (Los Angeles Times)
