iW NEWS | Four Projects for 4th Sundance Doc Film Editing Lab

Four projects have been selected to participate in the fourth annual Documentary Film Editing and Story Laboratory, taking place June 22 – 29 in Sundance, UT. This year’s projects explore a wide range of subjects including the role of music in Tibet’s assertion of cultural heritage, women in the Nepalese army, a moderate Muslim in Jordan forced to confront Jihad, and the emotional journey of several Ninth Ward, New Orleans residents through Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath. Projects taking part are: Ngawang Choephel (director) and Tim Bartlett (editor) for “Tibet in Song“; Julie Bridgham (director) and Mona Davis (editor) for “The Sari Soldiers“; Mahmoud Al Massad (director) for “Recycle“; and Tia Lessin and Carl Deal (directors) and Woody Richman (editor) for “Trouble the Water.” “We are welcoming a dynamic circle of visionary directors, producers and editors, each with an important original story to tell,” said Cara Mertes, director, Sundance Institute Documentary Film program in a statement. “Each film on its own is an inspirational testament to artistic courage and the enduring spirit of humanity. Together, they are a powerful contribution to documentary as a new, transnational cultural language.” [Brian Brooks]
