Two ITVS-funded films will have their documentary premiere at Sundance: Granito by filmmaker Pamela Yates and The Interrupters by filmmaker Steve James. In Yates’s Granito, an documentary film she made intertwines with Guatemala’s turbulent history and emerges as an active player in a nation’s struggle to heal itself and serve up justice. The Interrupters from Academy Award-winning director of Hoop Dreams Steve James, tells a story of ex-gang members who are now protecting their communities from the violence they themselves once employed.
Screening dates and times are still pending. You can find up-to-date information online at Sundance. You should also check out this clip from the producers of Granito as they explain the process behind making their film.
