The Genetics of Storytelling

Friday, January 26 • 4:30–6:00 p.m.
Filmmaker Lodge, 550 Main St., second floor


The story may live in us, but if we can’t tell our stories well, what difference will they make? When it comes to DNA, ancestry, and genetic science, this is where art and science can converge. Join Geralyn Dreyfous, co-founder of Impact Partners and GameChanger Films, as she moderates a conversation between two Sundance filmmakers, three of Utah’s top genetic scientists, and Utah’s own Ancestry.com as they come together to unpack the question: How can artists and scientists work more closely together to more broadly communicate the amazing advances in human understanding?
Presented by University of Utah Health

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.
