Sundance ’23 | From the Collection

by Tim Gordon

Rediscover classic works of independent cinema as the Sundance Film Festival presents films from the vaults of the Sundance Collection at UCLA. Formed in partnership with UCLA Film & Television Archive, and growing through the support of donors, the collection now contains more than 2,000 films.

A young, Black performance poet is imprisoned for a petty pot crime in a D.C. prison, but it’s where he finds salvation in his rhymes. A celebration of the spoken word through sublime poetry, heart-wrenching realism, and the redemptive power of art.

The Doom Generation
Jordan White and Amy Blue, two disenfranchised suburban teens, pick up a mysterious drifter, Xavier Red. Together, the trio embarks on a sex-filled joyride through a surreal American wasteland of QuickieMarts and ultraviolence.
