Colony Alums Siân Heder (’08), Eva Vives (’09), and Darius Clark Monroe (’13) have films enjoying their world premieres at Sundance this month!
For her feature debut, Heder’s “Tallulah” stars Ellen Page and Allison Janney in a dramatic comedy about a rootless young woman who takes a toddler from a wealthy, negligent mother and passes the baby off as her own in an effort to protect her. This decision connects and transforms the lives of three very different women.
Vives’ short film “Join the Club” starring Ari Graynor is a smart, fast-paced comedy exploring a writer’s dilemma of whether or not to join a professional networking club as it unfolds entirely during a single therapy session.
Darius Clark Monroe follows up his “Evolution of a Criminal” with “Dirt” — a new narrative short compellingly and simply described as “Some things must die to live.”
