Whether it’s speaking on behalf of all Native Americans or all Asian Americans or all gays, the burden of representation can weigh a lot. Join an openly gay Palawano Islander, a Jewish Maori, a Seminole Okie and a host of others whose films step outside “conventional” representation and explore what it means to speak for one’s self rather than an entire community. Sterlin Harjo (director, FOUR SHEETS TO THE WIND), Auraeus Solito (director, TULI), Taika Waititi (director, EAGLE VS. SHARK) and moderator Heather Rae (TRUDELL).
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.
