Sundance Film Institute continues its year-round work in the discovery and development of artists from diverse backgrounds with 2018 Native Filmmakers Lab.

This year, two emerging Native storytellers, Erica Tremblay(Seneca-Cayuga) and MorningStar Angeline Wilson(Navajo, Blackfeet, Chippewa Cree) will participate in the Lab, taking place for five days in Santa Fe this May. 

The Lab gives fellows a great opportunity to work with a cast, crew, and supervising producer under the expert creative mentorship of Program alumni, and learn from the established industry professionals. After the Lab, Erica Tremblay and MorningStar Angeline Wilson will receive support from supervising producers and grants to fund the production of their short film. With the support of Sundance, their work will be showcased at the January 2019 Sundance Film Festival. 

Erica Tremblay works on the short movie “Little Chief” focusing on the lives of a Native women and nine-year-old boy intersecting over the course of a school day on a reservation in Oklahoma. 

MorningStar Angeline Wilson’s “Thank you, Father” tells the story of a young woman struggling to come to terms with the legacy left to her after her father passes away in a post-apocalyptic world.

圣丹斯电影学院(Sundance Film Institute)将继续其全年工作,与2018年本土电影制片室(Native Filmmakers Lab)一起发现和发展来自不同背景的艺术家。

今年,两个新兴的本地故事者,Erica Tremblay(Seneca-Cayuga)和MorningStar Angeline Wilson(Navajo, Blackfeet, Chippewa Cree)将会参与到这个研究室中来,在今年5月的圣菲举办为期5天的演出。

该研究室为他们提供了一个很好的机会,让他们在校友的专业性指导下与演员、工作人员和监制人员一起工作,并向成熟的行业专业人士学习。之后,Erica Tremblay和MorningStar Angeline Wilson将获得制片人和基金的支持,以资助制作他们的短片。在Sundance的支持下,他们的作品也将在2019年1月的圣丹斯电影节(Sundance Film Festival)上展出。

Erica Tremblay专注于短片Little Chief的工作,讲述一位原住民女性和九岁男孩在俄克拉荷马州(Oklahoma)的一个学校一天的学习过程中相互穿插的故事。

MorningStar Angeline Wilson的Thank you, Father则讲述的一位年轻女性在世界末日她父亲离世后与父亲留给她的遗产作挣扎的故事。
