Flowers & a Switchblade


Institute History

  • 2020 Sundance Film Festival


Flowers & a Switchblade is a real-life conversation between two millennial women who meet in the park for the first time. Advancing the form of 360-degree-video production, Nic Koller and Weston Rio Morgan create an immersive experience collaged together from iPhone footage, including videos shot on a handheld rig that captures movement as a collage, to form a fractured, hyperstimulating, 360-degree cubist world. The result is a fascinating experience of the digital texture of everyday life.

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.
