Is This Thing On?

Remember when diaries were private and sex tapes were something you hid from the kids? Today’s always-on culture makes our definition of authentic quite elastic, like light being warped near a black hole. Where does privacy end and performance begin in a post-cinéma-vérité, perpetually plugged-in world? Moderated by Virginia Heffernan (The New York Times, Magic and Loss: The Pleasures of the Internet) and featuring Paul Abacus and Lars Jan (ABACUS), Eva Mattes (My Generation), Chris Moukarbel (ME AT THE ZOO), and Eyder Peralta (National Public Radio).

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.
