Film line up from the Sundance Independent competition

The 2006 Sundance Film Festival, taking place January 19-29, 2006
Independent Feature Film Competition: Dramatic

American independent cinema yields some of the most exciting and highly anticipated film in the world. These 16 films were selected from 1,004 submissions. From disaffected Latino youth finding family to a southern woman finding love, this section is filled with coming of age comedies and dramas, stories of love and addition with some characters seeking forgiveness for past sins. These films represent the diverse subjects and perspectives that constitute the vision and creativity of American independent filmmakers.

The films screening in Dramatic Competition are:

A GUIDE TO RECOGNIZING YOUR SAINTS (Director and Screenwriter: Dito Montiel)—A writer recounts his teenage experiences in tough 1980s Astoria, New York – where all his friends ended up dead, as junkies, or in prison – exploring how he managed to emerge unscathed. World Premiere.

COME EARLY MORNING (Director and Screenwriter: Joey Lauren Adams)—The story of a southern woman trying to escape her addictions and self-destructive behavior to find true love. World Premiere.

THE HAWK IS DYING (Director: Julian Goldberger; Screenwriters: Harry Crews (novel) and Julian Goldberger)—A Gainesville, Florida auto upholsterer attempts to subvert his mundane life by training a wild, red-tailed hawk. World Premiere.

IN BETWEEN DAYS (Director: So Yong Kim; Screenwriters: So Yong Kim and Bradley Rust Gray)—When a recent Korean immigrant falls in love with her best and only friend, their misunderstood affection for each other creates a delicate relationship that is challenged by the demands of living in a new country.
