Part of the Sundance Institute Film Series
Sundance Institute's commitment to supporting Native American and Indigenous artists is woven throughout the history of the Institute. The Native American and Indigenous Program works in four countries?the U.S., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand?and has established Labs in these parts of the world to support writers and directors in telling their stories. This month we showcase Samson & Delilah by Sundance Film Festival alumnus Warwick Thornton.
Winner of the Camera D'Or at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival, Samson & Delilah is a coming-of-age tale full of hope and survival rooted in a small community in the Central Australian desert. One of the most lyrical and gripping love stories in recent years, this film takes a rare look into an isolated world rarely depicted on the big screen.
The Park City Film Series is a nonprofit organization presenting the best of independent feature, documentary, world and local cinema. Our mission is to create community through film.
