Southern Exposure

One trend at the Festival this year is the unusual number of films that offer sophisticated representations of the American South and its culture. These films dispense with clich├ęs and stereotypes in favor of complex characters and a real embrace of the intricacy and distinctiveness of this region. Offering their unique observations on the subject will be Moderator Godfrey Cheshire and panelists Craig Brewer (Hustle & Flow); Tim Kirkman (Loggerheads); Marion Lipschutz, Rose Rosenblatt, and Shelby Knox (The Education of Shelby Knox); Phil Morrison (Junebug); and Ira Sachs (Forty Shades of Blue).

Note: no ticket is required for this event.

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.
