On May 1, 2021, fifteen college film students traveled to a place in the Uwharrie Mountains of North Carolina, known as The Devil’s Tramping Ground, to shoot their senior film project. ”The Devil’s Stomping Ground” is a narrative feature, edited together from the footage the seniors were shooting for their movie and the behind the scenes footage two juniors were shooting of their efforts. It is a cautionary tale about temptation, pushing your luck, and the inevitable consequences of being oblivious to your surroundings. Will they be “forever changed” as the legend suggests? Cucalorus alum Jon Landau has been making films in the Port City since the early 90s.
