Sakoon/Paint The Town


Paint the Town is the film adaptation of Sakoon, the autobiographical solo show based on the first generation experiences of Indian-American comedian Hasan Minhaj. This project seeks to reinvent the one-hour comedy special by eliminating the distance between performer and audience in a transformative exploration of the “new brown experience."


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.
