  • 2016 Sundance Documentary Film Grant - New Frontier


How much of our gender identity is shaped by culture and how much by nature? This is an eternal question which never ceases to intrigue. Flux is an interactive and personalized web documentary in development that will allow users to explore how gender identities are constructed. It is a journey into an alternate society where gender is negotiated and chosen instead of being defined by sex. Fluidity rules! Nothing is definite. Flux is an intimate encounter with gender-fluid people, a path to self-discovery, and the seed for a collective movement of imagining change.


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.
