#TideTurning, 550 Main St. - 2nd Floor

Changing the direction of a national discourse can seem like an impossible task, but sometimes new narratives inspire a surprising sea change. From immigration to the economy to democratic values, this year’s films suggest how storytelling can reset the discourse around hot-button issues. What happens when change itself gets a PR campaign? Artists and activists Pablo Larraín (No), Gael García Bernal (Who Is Dayani Cristal?, No), Jehane Noujaim (The Square), and Robert Reich (Inequality for All) join moderator Orlando Bagwell (Ford Foundation's JustFilms) to explore the ways creative approaches to storytelling can alter the course of history. Supported by the Ford Foundation.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication. If you have questions or comments, please email
