Bunker is a film about people who sell subterranean living space and those that live underground. Completed just before the 2020 U.S. Presidential elections, it depicts the crafting of exclusive underground shelters across the U.S. and the conversion of missile silos into subterranean skyscrapers, whose high-end condos now sell for millions of dollars. The film also provides an intimate look at men who have, for various reasons, devoted their lives to reclaiming and inhabiting repurposed Cold War sites.
