Rosa’s Time

Director: Daniel Hawkes
Screenwriters: Thom Ernst

Institute History

  • 1998 Sundance Film Festival


Rosa’s Time centers on a mysterious salesman, reminiscent of the “trickster” in Nativemythology, who touches the lives of a young girl and her single mother. Hartridge (Gary Farmer) is a smooth talker, but his motives are unclear. Yet, in the end, he brings an unusual and revealing gift.

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.
