Escape from Tomorrow

Firstly, it would be hard to imagine how Disney would ever allow this film to see the light of day. Secondly, it’s just a film for God’s sake! And thirdly, this is what the Sundance Film Festival is famous for.

Meanwhile, a first-time feature writer/director Randy Moore is the reasonable person who said:

It’s out there, and no one can change that. If this never gets distribution, that’s OK. if not a lot of people see it, that’s OK. I made it, and it’s in the world. That’s all I ever really wanted.

That film is Escape from Tomorrow. A postmodern black-and-white indie that was filmed almost entirely in Florida’s Walt Disney World during business hours, without anyone’s permission.

An epic battle begins when an unemployed, middle-aged father loses his sanity during a close encounter with two teenage girls on holiday. Roy Abramsohn plays Jim, the father who is losing his mind; Danielle Safady, one of the girls, really is a young teen, while Annet Mahendru, also looks young, but is evidently in her early 20s. The film also appears Elena Schuber, Katelynn Rodriguez and Alison Lees-Taylor.

Moore’s quixotic dream was shot entirely on a DSLR cameras, using the crowds and attractions of the Happiest Place of Earth as an ironic background for a surreal, pitch black tale.

Check it out below before being removed by Disney.
