"Going to Mars: The Nikki Giovanni Project" Worthy of Jury Prize for Documentary

Giovanni and her work remain open to interpretation, and the film is careful not to make our minds up for us about what it all means. As co-director Michele Stephenson stated elegantly after the screening, “black women’s joy is at the center.” She and co-director Joe Brewster brought ten other members of their production team onstage.

"The Mad Writer" Featuring Music Producer L'Orange Premieres at Slamdance

A film editor by trade, Zachary Kashkett never planned to direct a documentary. But he has edited enough of them to know that his childhood friend Austin Hart, better known by his stage name L'Orange, had a story worth telling. In 2015, a year after making his initial pitch, Kashkett began filming the independent music producer to create what would become his directorial debut, "The Mad Writer." The documentary was over eight years in the making, culminating in the Slamdance premiere in Park City on January 20.
