Promise Land, directed by Kevin Dalvi, is a brilliant, intense and engaging drama about the lives of a few individuals from diverse cultural backgrounds. The film weaves together three compelling narratives that focus on immigration issues. Inspired by real life stories, the plot revolves around South Asian immigrants living in Chicago and the people they encounter. It's about their unique struggles, triumphs, conflicts and challenges. It's funny, touching, heart-warming, and more importantly, it is a film with a powerful social message that relates to current events.
Life for former United Nations investigator Gerry Lane and his family seems content. Suddenly, the world is plagued by a mysterious infection turning whole human populations into rampaging mindless zombies.
In a future where a failed global-warming experiment kills off most life on the planet, a class system evolves aboard the Snowpiercer, a train that travels around the globe via a perpetual-motion engine.
