The Sundance Film Festival will have more than movies and documentaries. This year, there will also be a number of short films and episodic programming. (The Indie Episodic section is for creators of content for episodic platforms.) The projects come from around the world and cover a variety of themes.
A wild patience has taken me here
This short is a bridge between between the lesbianism of the 1970s and 1980s and the queer world of today. A middle aged motorcyclist goes to a lesbian party for the first time. She meets four young queers who welcome her with open arms.
This stop motion short is inspired by true events. The story takes place during the Chilean military dictatorship and follows the life of a secret police agent. Through her relationship with her dog and herself, a portrait of her mind and the country is revealed.
Bring on the Dancing Horses
Westerns are not as prevalent as they once were. Though there are good ones that still come out, the genre as a whole has fallen to the wayside. Bring on the Dancing Horses is a modern day Western about an assassin (Kate Bosworth) who is looking to complete her list of targets. The first of ten episodes will be shown.
Chiqui tells a familiar story. In 1987, Chiquie and Carlos emigrate from Columbia to New York. All they have with them are suitcases and their unborn child. As is often the case when people come over to live the American Dream, things do not go quite as planned.
The Dark Heart
This series is based on true events that occurred in Sweden. Bengt is a wealthy landowner who takes advantage of his fortune by holding influence over those who lease land from him. When his daughter falls in love with a nearby farmer, he tells her he must leave him. Shortly after, he disappears without a trace.
