Once in a Blue Moon

Director: Charley Lang
Screenwriters: Nadine Van Der Velde

Institute History

  • 1991 Sundance Film Festival


The pressures of life are too much for Jack Kapinsky, so he settles for a hermetic existence as an apostle to his late hero, Delroy, the King of Rock’n’Roll. Jack’s life takes a turn, however, when a pregnant fallen angel appears on his windowsill. Once in a Blue Moon is the story of two loners who struggle across their galaxies to find salvation in one another.

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.
