“Founded by Robert Redford in 1981 in the mountains of Sundance, Utah, Sundance Institute is a nonprofit organization dedicated year-round to the development of artists of independent vision and to the exhibition of their new work. Since its inception, the Institute has grown into an internationally recognized resource for thousands of independent artists through its Film Festival and artistic development programs for filmmakers, screenwriters, composers, writers, playwrights and theatre artists”.

Mr.Santo nos comenta directamente desde Sundance, que vio un film de Mr. Crispin Glover llamado: "It is Fine, Everything is Fine":
“It was quite the interesting movie. Some people would call it weird. I would say it was strange, even bizarre". Luego Mr. Santo nos dice: “I also had the opportunity to see a documentary on Joe Strummer, "The Future is Unwritten". It was excellent !”.
Segun nos cuentan, el Santo fue confundido con una "estrella de cine" mientras caminaba muy bien acompanhado por esa frias calles de Sundace.

Jonestown: The Life and Death of Peoples Temple

Photophone: Alex
Red Vic Movie House
in San Francisco

“The 1960s were years of intense social and cultural tumult; it was the Age of Aquarius, when change was in the air, revolution on the horizon, and all things seemed possible. Some looked to transcendental meditation, free love, Black Power, or LSD. But for others, Jim Jones, the charismatic and forceful leader of Peoples Temple, offered the perfect balance of spiritual fulfillment and political commitment. Jones not only preached about integration and equality, but also built an organization that provided food, clothing, and shelter to his congregation and his community.
On the surface, Jim Jones and his multiracial congregation, Peoples Temple, espoused the values of a model society. But in the summer of 1977 an article in New West magazine exposed the truth. Defectors and family members gave accounts of physical, sexual, and drug abuse, financial corruption, and members being held against their will.
On November 18, 1978, over 900 members of Peoples Temple died in the largest mass suicide/murder in history. Using never-before-seen archival footage and survivor interviews, Jonestown: The Life and Death of Peoples Temple tells the story of the people who followed Jim Jones from Indiana to California and finally to the remote jungles of Guyana, South America in a misbegotten quest to build an ideal society”.
