The Sundance Film Festival 2013 announced this week its selection of films to exhibit from a list of 12,000 submissions. At least three Bay Area filmmakers will be showing their works.
“Fruitvale” directed by Oakland native Ryan Coogler is a feature narrative based on the killing of Oscar Grant at the Fruitvale BART station.
Bay Area documentarian Jacob Kornbluth will premiere “Inequality for All” with Berkeley professor Robert Reich examining the alarming inequalty of wealth distribution in the contemporary United States.
The World Cinema Documentary competition will showcase the film “A River Changes Course” by Kalyanee Mam about her Cambodian homeland and its struggle to save its environment in the face of modern economic development. An attorney turned cinematographer, Ms. Mam hired my friend and colleague David Lortsher to color grade her documentary at our associate company Colorflow in the Zaentz Media Center, Berkeley, CA. It is visually dazzling besides a compelling story.
