Music films are a familiar sight at Sundance, but there are two this year that tell their stories from entirely new perspectives. Stewart Copeland's Everyone Stares: The Police Inside Out was created from Super 8 footage he shot during a Police tour in the late 70s, providing a first-person version of their rise from obscurity to stardom. In contrast, Awesome: I Fuckin' Shot That! is the result of Adam Yauch's (of the Beastie Boys) idea to give digital cameras to 50 concert-goers at the 2004 Madison Square Garden concert, "creating a 'concert film' like no other". "Everyone Stares" is in the Spectrum program this year, while "Awesome" screens as part of Park City at Midnight. Dan Nailen reports for the Salt Lake Tribune.
