An estranged brother and sister come together following a family tragedy.

Director’s Statement

You can’t bury the past, but you can try to make peace with it.
Tragedy gives us a chance to change. That’s what we wanted to explore in The Land Remains, a film set in a dying Rural America with tragedy as the backdrop.

American Farmers are suffering: Incomes are down. The trade war shows no signs of abating. The suicide rate is increasing. We wanted to tell a story set in this world, America in 2019, where histrionic headlines mask the pain and suffering of small-town Americans facing economic hardships. It’s a story that could easily pander and drip with melodrama. We hope we were able to find the truth in the story and that it inspires everyone, everywhere, to mend broken relationships and make tragedy transcendent.
