A Prayer Before Birth
Fatima's Letter

Film is increasingly being used by those who are ill to describe their experiences, but few are as imaginative as A Prayer Before Birth. Using horror-film devices, surrealism and a myriad of other visual effects, it stands as a testament to the courage it takes ti come to terms with multiple sclerosis.

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.
