Institute History


When Miriam, a public radio journalist, learns that her estranged paleontologist dad has become a creationist, she goes home to produce a story about his sea change. But as she reconnects to her gentler, newly born-again dad, she feels tempted to smear him and reveal the monster he used to be: a creature that no longer exists for anybody but her.

Screening Details


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.
