Homo Videocus

Institute History

  • 1992 Sundance Film Festival


The study of Boy (genus: Homo videocus), the personification of the television generation. Boy foregoes the real world and experiences life only through the black box in his living room. A fascinating allegory that questions the manipulation of this device invented only sixty years ago. Don’t touch that dial.

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.
