Institute History

Jan Oxenberg, utilizing fast edited, found family footage in Home Movie, articulated the quandary prompted by her schoolgirl images: “ I looked like a little girl, I didn’t feel like a little girl. I was different. . . . A cheerleader on the outside, a lesbian on the inside.”

— Robert Hawk

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.
