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).

Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds

Known far and wide as the impossibly big voiced leader of acclaimed soul collective Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds, singer Arleigh Kincheloe has made an astonishing leap forward with Sister SparrowÕs new LP, GOLD. Produced by Carter Matschullat (ChefÕSpecial, Secret Weapons), the album sees Sister Sparrow taking the classic brass-fueled Dirty Birds sound and turning it into something altogether new: a soul-blasted contemporary pop sound both timeless yet utterly now.
