Institute History

  • 2002 Sundance Film Festival


When biogeneticist Rosetta Stone (Tilda Swinton) creates a recipe to breed Ruby, Marine, and Olive, three cyborg/automatons (also all played by Swinton), she unwittingly cooks up a complex brew of beings who search to find meaning in a world where love is the only thing that makes things real.

Screening Details

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
