2015 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Jaffe Zinn’s Children

Along with her numerous contributions to American indie film plus supporting parts in Drake Doremus’ Equals and television’s House of Cards, 2014 will have been a productive year for “it” girl Kate Lyn Sheil. And while the actress who toplines Children was sizzling, it would appear that, artistically speaking, Jaffe Zinn has coals in more than one fire. While he may have been slow cooker mode for his sophomore film, the filmmaker who gave us Magic Valley in 2011 is a member of indie act Folded Light — they happened to have dropped their EP in the middle of 2014. Safe to say that it’ll be clear skies ahead for a 2015 release.

Gist: During a hazy summer filled with the smoke of distant wild fires, Abbie (Samantha Jacober) & Heidi (Kate Lyn Sheil) take a camping trip through the rugged mountains of Southern Idaho. Convinced that they are living in the end times as prophesied in the book of Revelations, Abbie sets about completing a terrible task she believes bestowed upon her in preparation for the coming Rapture.

Production Co./Producers: Jaffe and Stephanie Zinn, Sterling Hoch

Prediction: NEXT section or Park City at Midnight would both fit well.

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available. TBD (domestic). TBD (international)
