Happy New Fear

Institute History


Madame Bomba has a fake red TNT bomb strapped to her chest. The bomb cannot explode, and she cannot get rid of the bomb. She only responds with questions, since she does not have any answers. Her psyche is a bit complex. She is aware that the fake red TNT bomb she carries evokes fear and suspicion, but she thinks that she lives in a country where most people are familiar with such emotions, so she decides not to hide them anymore.


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.
