Bigfoot just might be real, at least in the indie film “Sasquatch Sunset.”

David and Nathan Zellner’s oddball comedy following a year in the life of a Bigfoot family as they roam their home in the Pacific Northwest made its hairy debut at Sundance Film Festival 2024. The Zellners call their movie more than just that about a creature, a family movie, a horror movie or a spoof.

Riley Keough enjoyed the opportunity to “go feral” after she decided that she could embody a sasquatch.

“The real, biggest question I had was, could I do it?” Keough recalled at TheWrap’s Sundance Portrait and Interview Studio presented by NFP. “Because there’s no gauge of ‘can I be a good Sasquatch?’ that I could [look to]. I ended up walking around my room in [a] Sasquatch headspace. I got into an ape position. I was like, ‘Yes, I could do that!’”
