The Ballad of Tina Juarez

Director: Juan Uribe

Institute History

  • 1993 Sundance Film Festival


Tina, a sixteen-year-old Mexican girl, is given the final word. She must leave the only world she has known, a Catholic orphanage, and make her own way in the world. Her richly textured journey is more than just directional; it becomes an emotional odyssey into her past in which she walks the fine line between childhood and womanhood.

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.
