Institute History


We live in an ocean of air. From the moment air first filled our lungs, everything changed—air transformed a lump of rock into a living, breathing planet. Breathe is a multisensorial mixed reality experience from Magic Leap devices that uses body gesture and biometric sensors to immerse participants in the 500-millions-year-old story of air. With a contemplative, rhythmic, and poetic thread, Breathe will recast the ordinary daily experience of breathing as the immediate and direct link in a slow and complex living world.


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.
