Re/Dis Location

Institute History

  • 2019 New Frontier Story Lab


Through site-specific virtual reality experiences, installation, and film, Re/Dis Location investigates the complicated personal histories and legacies of the Indian Relocation Act of 1956, which encouraged Native Americans to move off their reservations into urban centers. The resulting migration tore families and communities apart but was also instrumental in creating urban pan-Indian identities.

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.
