Sundance: Watch "Watcher" With the Lights on

I've been in a dark and twisty mood lately with my entertainment choices so when I heard about "Watcher" during episode 1 of "How to Fest Daily," I was intrigued. Festival programmer Ana Souza spoke with the film's director, Chloe Okuno about the psychological thriller and how unexpectedly needing to relocate filming to Bucharest, Romania helped create another layer of intrigue and suspense for the film's protaganist, Julia (played by Maika Monroe).

Sundance Diaries: "jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy" Might Just Dominate Sundance

Day two of the 2022 Sundance Film Festival opened with episode 1 of "How to Fest Daily" from festival director, Tabitha Jackson, who Zoomed in from New York to chat with Clarence "Coodie" Simmons and Chike Ozah, the duo behind the much-anticipated "jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy." Not surprisingly, these two are coming in hot at this year's festival. In addition to the conversation with Jackson this morning, IndieWire featured an interview with the online publication's managing editor Christian Blauvelt. The interview is free to watch, and I highly recommend it. Blauvelt asked insightful questions that prompted a comprehensive exploration into the making of "jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy."

Sundance Top 5 with Autumn T

Dear Sundance IRL, I miss you. It's true, I was getting nervous about doing red carpet reporting during Sundance—even vaxed, boosted, masked, and ready to go—but I wasn't nervous enough to not be excited about it. Then, Omicron. While there is certainly a sense of relief to be back online, I have to admit that I am just not as excited about the virtual experience. Don't get me wrong, I love being able to wear my glasses and cozy clothes and snuggle in to watch independent films. But the excitement that comes with being around storytellers and people wanting to learn about and from them in an environment where everyone is down to party can't be beat. The impromptu interviews with artists and storytellers I didn't plan to meet or interview have almost always ended up being my most memorable experiences. And, VR just can't be done without the VR equipment, which I don't have. So, after wallowing in some disappointment about not experiencing Sundance in person, I have found some new things to look forward to from the computer screen. Here's hoping we humans can get our act together enough to have nice things again in 2023.
