My Trip


Institute History

  • 2020 Sundance Film Festival


“Bad boy” contemporary artist Bjarne Melgaard gives us this wild, thumping simulation of a DMT trip that draws on new psychedelia, pulsing metal music, and internet paranoid probings of existential angst and the boundaries of materiality itself. In this virtual retrospective, travel with characters such as Octo and Lightbulb Man through psychological inquietude and the dark web to unknown realms.

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.
