Films that Matter: Resilience at Sundance 2016
Imagine the implications if the causes of medical conditions such as heart disease could be linked to adverse childhood experiences, also known as ACEs. That very connection is carefully explored in Resilience, which sheds light on the repercussions of early life traumas. New research shows how the previously unconnected links are evident in the health outcomes of adults.
Matt Duhamel, Film Director at Metamora Films will hold a red carpet interview with the director of the documentary film, Resilience, on Friday the 22nd at the Sundance Film Festival. Duhamel says, “I’m attending Sundance this year to find films that are making a difference in the world. I’m honored to be speaking with James Redford about his film and his goal for his film company.”
Karen Pritzker and James Redford’s produced the film through their production company KPJR whose mission in filmmaking is to make films that not only educate, but make a difference. KPJR’s mission, which is extremely similar to Metamora Films’ mission, seem to be on the same track in terms of making a difference using the power of independent film.
In addition to a red carpet interview with Redford, Metamora Films has plans to attend numerous events and premiers in search of powerful and meaningful films.
Duhamel’s latest film project is a documentary focusing on the difficulties faced by ex-inmates during the search for housing. The film tentatively titled, “NOT FOR RENT!”, is scheduled for an early 2017 release.
