ABSTRACT
This article presents information on several newly released films that have been displayed during the 24th Sundance Film Festival in 2004, in Sundance, Utah. The Festival had two opening-night films. The first in Park City on January 15 was Stacey Peralta's "Riding Giants," a documentary film about surfing culture. The second, screened in Salt Lake City on January 16, was Chris Eyre's "Edge of America." "Edge of America" is a Native American film directed by Lyre, a Southern Cheyenne/Arapaho filmmaker. It was screened outside the Native Forum Program, in the Premier category. The script was written by playwright Willy Holtzman, whose play Hearts was nominated for the 2003 Pulitzer Prize. It is further reported that N. Bird Runningwater, programmer for the Native Forum, emphasized the common themes and similarities in the storytelling of the Native filmmakers this year. This year's Native Forum included a two-hour workshop, "Indigenous Actors and the Creative Process." Some of the other films, displayed during the festival, were: "The Land Has Eyes," directed by Vilsoni Hereniko; "Our Nationhood," directed by Alanis Obomsawin; and "A Prayer for a Good Day," directed and produced by Zoe Leigh Hopkins.
