Sundance taps three for Collection

'Metropolitan,' 'Harold and Maude' to be screened

Sundance Institute has tapped “Metropolitan,” “Poison” and “Harold and Maude” as its selections for its From the Collection screenings at the upcoming festival.

This marks the 20th anniversary of ‘Metropolitan,’ a film that at its time was at the forefront of a new sensibility in independent film,” said programmer John Nein. “We selected ‘Poison’ … which represents award-winning work created with slim resources and a shoestring budget. ‘Harold and Maude’ is a studio film made at a time when artist-driven filmmaking did come from major companies, and, of course, it is a classic that independent filmmakers have embraced for years.”

Metropolitan,” directed and written by Whit Stillman, received an Oscar nomination for his screenplay about a group of young Manhattanites passing through a debutante season.

“Poison,” directed and penned by Todd Haynes, was the grand jury prize winner at the 1991 Sundance fest and consists of three stories inspired by the French novelist Jean Genet.

Harold and Maude” was directed by Hal Ashby and written by Colin Higgins. It stars Ruth Gordon and Bud Cort.

Sundance presents retrospective screenings each year from the Sundance Collection at UCLA to pay tribute to significant works in the history of independent film and stress the importance of film preservation. The Sundance Collection at UCLA has grown to nearly 600 titles.

Sundance will run Jan. 21-31.
