Documentaries choses for annual event
“Tibet In Song,” “The Sari Soldiers,” “Recycle” and “Trouble The Waters” are the four documentaries that have been selected to participate in the fourth annual Sundance Institute Documentary Film Editing and Story Lab, June 22- 29.
This year’s lab fellows are: director Ngawang Choephel and editor Tim Bartlett “(Tibet In Song”); helmer Julie Bridgham and editor Mona Davis (“The Sari Soldiers”); director Mahmoud Al Massad (“Recycle”); and helmers Tia Lessin and Carl Deal and editor Woody Richman (“Trouble the Water”).
Work-in-progress docs explore subjects including the role of music in Tibet’s assertion of cultural heritage, women in the Nepalese army, a moderate Muslim in Jordan forced to confront Jihad, and the emotional journey of several Ninth Ward, New Orleans residents through Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath.
Lab’s creative advisers are: editors Jean-Philippe Boucicaut (“Citizen King”); Kate Amend (“The Long Way Home”); Lewis Erskine (“Jonestown: The Life and Death of Peoples Temple”); Mary Lampson (“Harlan County”); and directors Robb Moss (“Secrecy”) and Ra’anan Alexandrowicz (“The Inner Tour”).
Lab will be held in Sundance, Utah.
