On May 11, "Sundance Institute at
BAM" kicks off with an invitation-only screening of the
film, "Little Miss Sunshine."
Before the tears start to flow, rest assured that there are tickets remaining for most of the screenings of 15 feature length and documentary films culled from January’s festival in Park City, Utah, as wells as the panel discussions, filmmaker Q&As, and musical performances that continue through May 21.
Among the Sundance Film Festival selections being screened is Mark Dornford-May’s "Son of Man" (pictured), which sets Jesus’s life in modern-day South Africa. This movie will be shown May 14 at 6:15 pm and May 15 at 9:30 pm.
The co-winner of the jury prize in short filmmaking, Adam Parrish King’s short film "The Wraith of Cobble Hill," is, indeed, set in our very own borough. "Wraith" will be shown as part of a short film program on May 14 at 12:30 pm and May 16 at 9:30 pm.
