Bold Stories, Changing Times

Sunday, January 22, 2:00 p.m.

Filmmaker Lodge
550 Main St.

What does it mean to lead a creative life in America today? Amid the tensions underlying our divided society, storytellers not only contribute to the richness of our culture but pull it forward. In a climate that emboldens intolerance, bigotry, and attacks on free expression, how do storytellers think about what stories to tell and who they are for? Join the discussion with Janicza Bravo (Lemon), Nonny de la Peña (Out of Exile: Daniel’s Story), Gerard McMurray (Burning Sands), James Schamus (Indignation), Kamir Amer, and moderator Franklin Leonard (founder, The Black List)

Panels are open to all Festival credential holders on a space-available basis.

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.
