Jan 28 Norlien Foundation Presents: ADDICTION FICTION

Wednesday, January 28, 2015
Filmmaker Lodge

Addiction provides fertile ground for storytellers because it seems to pit courage and character against a merciless chemical villain. But neuroscientists see addiction as a brain disease with more complex causes and solutions.  Have decades of mythologizing influenced our society’s approach to this issue? Can a better understanding of the brain help us tell richer, truer stories about addiction? Join a discussion between prominent filmmakers and leading brain experts in search of a cure for addiction fiction. Food and refreshments provided.

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.
