Kim's Sister

Institute History

  • 1994 Playwrights Lab


Kim arrives in Los Angeles with two questions: how did her sister Noreen die, and why she had ever come to live there in the first place? Her search for answers starts in a morgue, and then takes her on a tour of Los Angeles and her sister’s past. It’s a trip that also takes her to some surprising places in herself: she had expected that everything would be for sale in LA, but what amazes her are the astonishing things you can buy.


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.
