How To Make It To the Promised Land is a short film raising money on Kickstarter about a Holocaust game played at fictional Jewish camp Camp Shalom. The screenplay is based on a short story by Ellen Umansky and was written and directed by Sam Zalutsky. It was shot at VT Ranch in Santa Clarita, California. The producers are looking to raise $18,000 to finish the film and submit it to festivals.
One day at summer camp, Lizzie and her fellow campers are divided into SS Officers and Jews in Nazi-occupied Poland in 1941. As the game devolves into chaos, Lizzie tries to avoid the ever-increasing frenzy of the campers and the zealousness of her counselors until she must decide whether to participate in this bizarre game of memory and identification.
