Q&A QUICK SHEET
1. Where was THE TRAIL shot?
THE TRAIL was shot in the Lake Tahoe area, near Donner Pass. The filming locations were the same harsh landscapes where the ill-fated Donner Party found themselves stranded in the 1840s.
2. What was the inspiration for creating THE TRAIL?
Historically, wilderness survival films have been centered around male characters. (Examples include: Castaway, 127 Hours, Jeremiah Johnson, The Grey, etc.) THE TRAIL seeks to fortify the survival genre by re-imagining the scenarios from a female perspective, with a female lead.
