In a year when a preponderance of festival films explore the harrowing terrain of sexual trauma, what connects these stories, which expose the culture of rape and abuse and the criminalization of victims, while looking at the possibilities of justice, recovery, and transformation? Kirby Dick (The Hunting Ground), Kim Longinotto (Dreamcatcher), Frida Barkfors (Pervert Park), executive producer Regina Scully and moderator Pat Mitchell (Sundance Institute, Paley Center) discuss how film can break the silence and people can break the cycle.

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.
