Sundance offers ‘Trans’ port

Pic won Jury Prize at Berlin Film Fest

NEW YORK — “Trans,” the feature debut from writer-director Julian Goldberger that won a Jury Prize at the 1999 Berlin Film Festival, will have its world premiere on the Sundance Channel, the cable network announced.

Sundance Channel will air the film, which also appeared in the Frontier section of the 1999 Sundance Film Festival, on Jan. 14 as part of “Something New: Sundance Channel Premieres.”

“Trans,” written and directed by Goldberger, follows a 16-year-old runaway from a juvenile detention center who wanders aimlessly through southwestern Florida.

“By taking risks and experimenting with film techniques, Julian Goldberger has created an impressionistic, yet lifelike portrait of a teenager’s inner world,” said Liz Manne, Sundance Channel’s exec VP, programming and marketing.

Sundance Channel plans to make the world premiere of “Trans” an interactive event with special programming on its Web site (www.sundancechannel.com), including an online chat with Goldberger.
