Thirteen projects have been named for the annual June Directors and Screenwriters Labs, which will take place at the Sundance Resort in Utah. The June Directors Lab (May 28 - June 23) are: "The Cavanaughs" by co-writer/director John Morgan and co-writer Meg LeFauve (USA); "Circumstance" by Maryam Keshavarz (USA/Iran); "Cold Souls" by Sophie Barthes (USA); "Farming" by Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (UK/Nigeria); "Haiti Cherie" by Patricia Benoit (USA/Haiti); "Here" by co-writer/director Braden King and co-writer Dani Valent (USA/Australia); "Spoon" by Eric Lahey (USA); "Water & Power" by Richard Montoya (USA). Joining the above for the Screenwriters Lab portion (June 23 - 28) are: "Dreaming in Colour" by Tala Hadid (Morocco/USA); "Pariah" by Dee Rees (USA); "Refresh, Refresh" by James Ponsoldt (USA); "This Is Not a Pipe: An Image of Treason" by J.J. Lask (USA); and "Um Hussein" by co-writer/director Mohamed Al-Daradji and co-writer Jennifer Norridge (Iraq/UK). The Labs provide an opportunity for filmmakers to develop distinctive new work under the guidance of accomplished creative advisors in an environment that "encourages innovation, collaboration, and risk-taking." "We are excited to champion the unique vision of each of the filmmakers selected for this year's Lab. After 25 years of working with emerging filmmakers, I'm struck by the quality and the boldness of the work we are supporting this June," said Michelle Satter, director, Sundance Institute Feature Film Program. "Each project reflects the filmmaker's deeply personal voice, and tells a timely and poignant story that transcends geographic boundaries and adds to the examination of contemporary culture in a meaningful and often surprising way."
