Trustee Sarah Johnson Redlich '82 is an executive producer of three documentary films that will premiere at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival in January.
Sixteen films were selected for the U.S. documentary competition, from 841 submissions. Each will premiere at the fesival.
Redlich is an executive producer for:
- Connected: An Autoblogography about Love, Death & Technology (Director, Tiffany Shlain; Screenwriters, Tiffany Shlain, Ken Goldberg, Carlton Evans and Sawyer Steele) Connected is an exhilarating stream-of-consciousness ride through the interconnectedness of humankind, nature, progress and morality at the dawn of the 21st century. For centuries we've been declaring independence. With insight, curiosity, and humor, the film explores whether it's time to declare our interdependence.
- The Last Mountain (Director, Bill Haney; Screenwriters, Bill Haney and Peter Rhodes) A coal mining corporation and a tiny community vie for the last great mountain in Appalachia in a battle for the future of energy that affects us all.
- Miss Representation (Director, Jennifer Siebel Newsom; Screenwriters, Jennifer Siebel Newsom and Jessica Congdon) Miss Representation uncovers how American mainstream media's limited and disparaging portrayals of women contribute to the under-representation of women in power positions - creating another generation of women defined by youth, beauty and sexuality, and not by their capacity as leaders.
Redlich was executive producer of the acclaimed 2009 documentary Living In Emergency: Stories of Doctors Without Borders.
