Sundance Adds Zach Braff’s ‘Wish I Was Here’ and ‘Clerks’ Retrospective

'Clerks' set for Jan. 24 screening

Sundance Institute has added two films to next month’s film festival — Zach Braff’s Kickstarter-funded film “Wish I Was Here” to the Premieres section and Kevin Smith’s “Clerks” for a special “From the Collection” midnight screening.

“Clerks” join the previously announced From the Collection screening of “Hoop Dreams.” Both films premiered at the 1994 Festival and will be shown Jan. 24.

The Sundance showing will be the world premiere for “Wish I Was Here,” raised $3.1 million earlier this year via a month-long Kickstarter campaign. Besides Braff, cast includes Kate Hudson, Mandy Patinkin, Ashley Greene, Jim Parsons and Josh Gad.

 Braff portrays a struggling actor, husband and father trying to find his identity and purpose at age 35. He winds up trying to home school his two children when his father can no longer afford to pay for private education and the only available public school is on its last legs.
