The Sundance Film Festival has been shining a light on new voices since its inception in 1984. This year’s Sundance is highlighting the diverse voices and talents of women across cultures. Two animated shorts that are making their premiere this year are GNT and The Fourfold.
Created by Sara Hirner and Rosemary Vasquez-Brown, GNT tells the story of three friends obsessed with social media. As the friends debate the best ways to use their Instagram accounts, a larger conversation about female body positivity and individuality takes shape. Clever and wonderfully gross, this hilarious short will leave an impression on audiences.
Alisi Telengut’s The Fourfold, is part of Sundance’s Indigenous program. The handcrafted artwork, blend of artistic styles created a moving tapestry that will mesmerize viewers. Filled with both celestial and earth tones, the melding of colors tells the stories of traditions and beliefs in Mongolian cultures.
