Institute History


Storyteller takes place for the most part in the El Rey bar on old Route 66 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Nick, the Navajo bartender, is a storyteller with a checkered past. His cocktail-waitress girlfriend, Joline, has her own story, and when the two are confronted with their past, or at least the parts they leave out, they have to make some choices.

— Heather Rae

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.
