Meet Me In Wichita

Institute History

  • 2007 Sundance Film Festival


Filmmaker Martha Colburn creates distinctive and troubling worlds of sex, hell, and politics in her short films. Her actors are animated homemade puppets, often in front of found film footage she has hand painted. Her new short is a political fairy tale about Dorothy and Osama where characters from the film emerge onto the walls of her installation. Scarecrows beware.


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.
