(indieWIRE/11.27.01) -- The American Showcase Lineup for the 2002 Sundance Film Festival:

"13 CONVERSATIONS ABOUT ONE THING," directed by Jill Sprecher

Intersecting lives of ordinary people who find themselves at the brink of life changing events. Investigates the role of fate and karma.

"EMPIRE," directed by Franc Reyes

A young latino hustler from the south Bronx of New York makes a deal with a succesful Wall Street investment banker in order to make a better life for himself and his new family.

"STORYTELLING," directed by Todd Solondz

Storytelling is comprised of two separate stories set against the sadly comical terrain of college and high school, past and present. Following the paths of its young hopeful/ troubled characters, it explores issues of sex, race, celebrity and exploitation.

"TEKNOLUST," directed by Lynn Hershman Leeson

When biogeneticist Rosetta Stone (Tilda Swinton) creates a recipe to breed Ruby, Marine, and Olive, three cyborg/automatons (also all played by Swinton), she unwittingly cooks up a complex brew of beings who search to find meaning in a world where love is the only thing that makes things real.

"WORLD TRAVELER," directed by Bart Freundlich

An architect simply walks out of his life, leaving his wife and child. He hits the road and encounters a cast of characters that make him realize the importance of family.
