Institute History

  • 2020 Intensive for Indigenous Artists


Water follows Kaden, a young, queer, Indigenous woman who has grown up away from her community. After landing a summer government job as a community liaison for what seemed like an opportunity to work with her own people, Kaden learns that she will instead be working closely with a new species called the “sandpeople.”

Screening Details

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.
