We are thrilled to announce that two films from the WMM Production Assistance Program will be screened at the 2023 Slamdance film festival.
Kimi Takesue’s new documentary, ONLOOKERS, will have its World Premiere two decades after she won the “Spirit of Slamdance” award at the festival with her film HEAVEN’S CROSSROAD. ONLOOKERS offers a visually striking, immersive meditation on travel and tourism in Laos, reflecting on how we all live as observers.
Also screening, is WISDOM GONE WILD (dir. Rea Tajiri) — a feature-length essay documentary that premiered last year at the BlackStar Film Festival presenting a fresh look at dementia and caregiving, observed over 15 years. The 2023 Slamdance Film Festival runs Friday, January 20 – Sunday, January 29 in Park City and Salt Lake City, Utah.
Congratulations Kimi and Rea!
