Institute History

  • 2018 Sundance Film Festival


This piece is housed at New Frontier at Kimball Art Center and is open to credential holders.

A barrel bomb drops, blowing rubble everywhere. Amid the destruction, a call for help comes from the debris—a child is trapped inside—but the path to help the victim is treacherous. Will you embark on the hero's journey? Hero is a deeply provocative, immersive, multisensory narrative that evolves as audiences actively participate in its elaborate canvas of virtual and actual environments.

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.
