A new film that features some big names and Cleveland’s skyline is making its local debut this weekend.

Cleveland Native Steven Caple, Jr. wrote and directed his film “The Land,” which will be playing at Cedar Lee Theater in Cleveland Heights. The film follows four skateboarding teens with lofty ambitions who make a dark decision to find their dreams.

It is an official Sundance Film Festival selection.

“These kids become drug dealers as a means of surviving,” Caple said. “And now you’re questioning — is what they’re doing wrong or is what they’re doing right?”

The film also stars another recognizable name for Clevelanders, Machine Gun Kelly, who worked as an executive producer on the project. Caple says MGK jumped on the opportunity to be a part of the film.
