Life of Us

Screenwriters: McKenzie Stubbert

Institute History

  • 2017 Sundance Film Festival


Experience a multiperson participatory narrative that tells the complete story of the evolution of life on Earth. From protozoa to tadpole, dinosaurs, apes, humans, and beyond, you, along with up to three other participants, will simultaneously encounter firsthand the lives of those who came before and those who will come after us. Visitors become creatures via their voices and bodies and share the experience from different locations in Park City. Experience Life of Us at the VR Palace and at New Frontier on Main Street; then attempt to meet the same people in real life at a special-invitation meetup.

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.
