Director: Wim Wenders
Year of Production: 2004
Angered by the American government's response to the events of 11 September 2001, LAND OF PLENTY is one of WIM WENDERS' most impassioned films.
Lana (Oscar™ nominee MICHELLE WILLIAMS) returns from missionary work overseas in order to find her uncle (JOHN DIEHL), amidst the paranoia of post 9/11 America. What she discovers is a country in pain, whose growing underbelly of poor and dispossessed are a portent of hopelessness for the future.
Featuring The Wire's WENDELL PIERCE and SHAUN TOUB (Crash, The Kite Runner, Iron Man), LAND OF PLENTY is an urgent call for harmony in a world torn apart by violence and extremism.
