Sundance Film Festival

I love the Sundance Film Festival.  So many good films, many of which we'd never see without their showing at Sundance.  Last year brought BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD.  A year or two ago it was WINTER'S BONE.  My own son-in-law Matt, entered a short film for this years festival, but didn't make the cut.
I have written about Gael Garcia Bernal before (you can type in his name in upper left corner).  He is an incredible actor, director, producer...  Acting with the likes of Robert De Niro, Brad Pitt, Daniel Day Lewis and Cate Blanchett, he is a phenom in so many areas.  He played a young Che Gueverra in THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES,  and in one of my favorites, Y tu MAMA TAMBIEN.  You need to google him to find out more about this amazing man.  His latest, WHO IS DAYANI CRISTAL is showing at Sundance.


  1. Did You see the movie called "NO"???

  2. That movie is about muy country

  3. Hola Maria, I have not seen that one. Is it about Pinochet?

  4. Hello Donna,
    Something like that.
    It's actually about the political campaign that was to say yes yes Pinochet remained in government or not continue.
    Many do not know, but it was Pinochet government (but not our lives) through a popular referendum.

  5. It's good to find out about new talent and dare to create out of the most commercial range of rehash. My niece worked on 'Beasts of the Southern Wild.'
