Our School at the Sundance Documentary Lab

We are the luckiest documentary film project in the world. We had a full, fantastic week at the Sundance Documentary Lab in Utah. A fantastic creative privilege in a stimulating environment, with some of the best advisers - documentary film directors and editors - and filmmaker "classmates" on this earth. A week of continuous feedback and almost round-the-clock work that allowed us to better understand our project, take it to the next level, and generally make more progress in one week than in two months of editing. We're too exhausted to be more specific, so instead we'll share another photo which gives you the flavor of feedback sessions at the Lab:

The Sundance Creative Producing Summit is next. Can hardly wait.
