Post-Sundance News

We’re finally back from Park City after an amazing experience at the World Premiere of Unrest at the Sundance Film Festival. We couldn’t have asked for a better reception from audiences (and critics!), and it’s been deeply gratifying and profoundly moving to begin bringing this story to the public. For those of you who were with us at the festival — and to those of you who have sent your support through emails, social media, and virtual love — thank you.

Amid the tears, hugs, and standing ovations, our time at Sundance came with some exciting news. We’re honored to have received the Special Jury Prize for Editing in Documentary, a credit to our incredible editors Kim Roberts and Emiliano Battista.

We’re also excited to announce that our next stop on the festival circuit will be SXSW in Austin, Texas! Unrest will be screening as part of the Festival Favorites section. The festival is March 10–19, 2017. Our screening dates are still to be announced, but we hope to see some of you there!

Finally, at long last, we’re beyond thrilled to share that Unrest will be coming to public television, an outlet accessible to all. We’ll have our US broadcast premiere on PBS's Independent Lens, a series watched by over 1.2 million viewers each week, in early 2018! (For more on our distribution timeline, read our FAQ.)

We couldn't be doing this without you. Thank you for your continued support!
