Institute History

  • 2020 Sundance Film Festival


You are one of five cosmonauts visiting a mysterious future, exploring the surface of a depopulated planet in ruin, colonized by lichens and a strange cloud of data filling the land with human ghosts. What does this curious landscape tell us about our lives? Projecting into the future of the Anthropocene epoch, Solastalgia is a meditation on today’s tensions between the potentially redemptive power of technology and the scientific forecast of a compromised future.

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.
