Reseeing the Present, Rewriting the Past

Monday, January 28, 2:00 p.m.–3:30 p.m.
Filmmaker Lodge, 550 Main St. (2nd floor)

For two particular U.S. populations, Native Americans and African
Americans, the history of mainstream cinema has been one of erasure and misrepresentation. But that history is being rewritten and redressed, and that cinema is being challenged through radically reimagined aesthetics and upended storyforms. Join Tommy Orange (There There), RaMell Ross (Hale County This Morning, This Evening), Sky Hopinka (Fainting Spells), Garrett Bradley (America), Amelia Winger-Bearskin (artist/technologist), and Crystal Echo Hawk (Echo Hawk Consulting) as they inscribe new ways of seeing and being seen into the future history of cinema.

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.
