PARK CITY 2000: No Parking on the Dance Floor: Slamdance and the Other

by Bryan Wendorf

(indieWIRE/2.2.2000) -- The Sixth Annual Slamdance Film Festival began with the near arrest of a
participating filmmaker. Iranian refugee Farhad Yawari, maker of
"Dolphins," was handcuffed and came close to spending his trip to Park
City on the wrong side of cell bars for "intent to solicit business." A
new city ordinance this year attempts to ban handbills, flyers, or other
advertising materials from being handed to passersby, or placing them
on cars, buildings or sign posts.
