Power of Story: Pushing Boundaries

Thursday, January 31, 2:30 p.m.–4:00 p.m.
Egyptian Theatre, 328 Main St.
Ticket required

In contemplating the complexities of the world, we have always looked to artists and storytellers to challenge our thinking and shake us from complacency. That’s particularly true of fiercely independent artists who maintain the freedom to shatter prevailing orthodoxies, reframe moral perspectives, and push the boundaries of accepted norms. They don’t lead us to safety but away from it, out of our comfort zones.

We’re joined by a group of exceptional, provocative filmmakers and artists—Rick Alverson (The Mountain), Mads Brügger (Cold Case Hammarskjöld), Kitty Green (Casting JonBenet), Penny Lane (Hail Satan?), and Asad J. Malik (A Jester’s Tale)—for a conversation about how their work pushes boundaries conceptually, formally, and morally.

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.
