THE DEEPEST HOLE

HD / 2020 / 12:00

Two Cold War superpowers raced to see which country could dig the deepest hole, but only one found hell along the way.

The Deepest Hole chronicles the little-known history of the United States and Soviet Union’s Cold-War race to see which country could be the first to penetrate 10 miles into the ground and reach the Earth’s mantle. While neither country completely accomplished their goals, the effort indirectly inspired a now infamous urban legend and one of the earliest examples of “fake news” going viral on the internet.

“While the Space Race, Arms Race, and many other Cold War contests are common knowledge, few know that the United States and Soviet Union competed to see which country could dig the deepest hole.  This lack of awareness is particularly surprising seeing that one of the countries may have inadvertently discovered Hell in the process.”

The Deepest Hole will be making its world premiere at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.  Production of the film was supported by the Regional Arts and Culture Council, Portland Oregon.
