Sundance Institute Free Summer Screening: RBG

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s vigorous dissenting opinions and ferocious 20-push-up workouts have earned this tiny, soft-spoken intellectual giant the status of rock star and the title “Notorious RBG.” Intent on systematically releasing women from second-class status, she argued six pivotal gender-bias cases in the 1970s before an all-male Supreme Court blind to sexism. RBG tells the electric story of Ginsburg’s consuming love affairs with both the Constitution and her beloved husband Marty—and of a life’s work that led her to become an icon of justice in the highest court in the land. Activities start at 7:30 p.m. Register to vote, visit information booths for local organizations supporting activism for voters' and women’s rights, and purchase a sweet treat from Waffle Love on site! Parking is limited; please walk, bike, or take public transit. In the event of inclement weather, the screening will be moved to The Ray Theatre, 1768 Park Ave, Park City

Sundance Institute Free Summer Screening: Hearts Beat Loud

As single dad Frank (Nick Offerman) prepares to send hardworking daughter Sam (Kiersey Clemons) off to UCLA pre-med, he also reluctantly realizes he has to accept that his own record-store business is failing. Hoping to stay connected with his daughter through their shared love of music, he urges her to turn their weekly “jam sesh” into an actual band. They unexpectedly find We’re Not a Band’s first song turning into a minor Spotify hit, and they use their songwriting efforts to work through their feelings about the life changes each of them faces. Preceded by the StoryCorps short film The Saint of Dry Creek, directed by Julie Zammarchi, 4 min. Patrick Haggerty was a teenager in rural Dry Creek, Washington, in the late 1950s. Here, he remembers the day he first had a conversation with his father about being gay. Presented in collaboration with Ogden Amphitheater.

Gates open at 6:30 p.m. http://www.sundance.org/festivals/utah-community#hearts-beat-loud



The Silence of Others (El Silencio de Otros)

Post-film discussion TBA.

The Silence of Others offers a cinematic portrait of the first attempt in history to prosecute crimes of Franco’s 40-year dictatorship in Spain (1939-1975), whose perpetrators have enjoyed impunity for decades due to a 1977 amnesty law. It brings to light a painful past that Spain is reluctant to face, even today, decades after the dictator’s death.

Filmed with intimate access over six years, the story unfolds on two continents: in Spain, where survivors and human rights lawyers are building a case that Spanish courts refuse to admit, and in Argentina, where a judge has taken it on using the principle of universal jurisdiction, which allows foreign courts to investigate crimes against humanity if the country where they occurred refuses to do so.

Sundance Institute Free Summer Screening: Life Animated

At three years old, a chatty, energetic little boy named Owen Suskind ceased to speak, disappearing into autism with apparently no way out. Almost four years passed and the only stimuli that engaged Owen were Disney films. Then one day, his father donned a puppet—Iago, the wisecracking parrot from Aladdin—and asked, “What’s it like to be you?” And poof! Owen replied, with dialogue from the movie. Presented in collaboration with the Kimball Arts Festival. Come at 7:30 p.m. for an array of delectable desserts available for purchase from Last Course Dessert Studio.

Parking is limited; please walk, bike, or take public transit. In the event of inclement weather, the screening will be moved to The Ray Theatre (1768 Park Ave., Park City). http://www.sundance.org/festivals/utah-community#life-animated
