For the Love of Rutland

Institute History

  • 2019 Film Music and Sound Design Lab at Skywalker Sound


As a small, blue-collar city in New England struggles to emerge from the opioid epidemic and gets caught up in a battle over Syrian refugee resettlement, For the Love of Rutland closely follows the lives of several intersecting characters to explore what changes - and what doesn't - when rural and small-town Americans in majority-white communities see themselves in "the other."

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.
