Man in the Maze

Institute History


Originally created as an illustration of the emergence story by the Papago
Indians of Southern Arizona, Man in the Maze takes us on a journey
through the US borderlands, where we see how people are coming up with
innovative solutions to mend our broken food system. #e right choices lead
us to a point of harmony with all things, no matter how hard or long the road
taken. Food activist, writer, and conservationist Gary Paul Nabhan sits at the
intersection of inspired food activists, farmers, and change-makers. Here in
Southern Arizona where it seems like there is no hope, there is a grassroots
food movement shifting the way we grow and eat our food.

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.
