Institute History

  • 2015 Sundance Film Festival


Pleix Paradise is a mesmerizingly beautiful projection series that, first and foremost, depicts life as it is, and then turbocharges it into digital overdrive. This media design collective depicts Escheresque realities that cannot exist in nature: a sea inside the shore, an idyllic river canyon jammed with rafts, a never-ending drive through the hills. These absurdly paradisiacal projections are tinged with a humor that speaks to a hyperreality we may all be experiencing at this tipping point of real-world soaring populations. —S.F.

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.
