Dogwoof at Sundance London

Sundance London returns this year and Dogwoof is excited to bring three films to the festival - Life, Animated, Weiner and Author: The JT LeRoy Story.

All three films premiered at Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and the Sundance London screenings will mark their UK premieres. Glad to have you back Sundance London!

Life, Animated

WINNER: DIRECTING AWARD, US DOCUMENTARY - SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL

 

Life, Animated tells the remarkable story of how Owen Suskind, a boy diagnosed with Autism, found in Disney animation a pathway to language and a framework for making sense of the world.


Weiner

WINNER: GRAND JURY PRIZE, US DOCUMENTARY - SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL

 

With unprecedented access to his family and his campaign team, Weiner documents the dramatic and painfully funny political meltdown of Anthony Weiner, a New York mayoral candidate.


 

New York magazine’s October 2005 issue sent shockwaves through the literary world when it unmasked wunderkind JT LeRoy, who captivated icons and luminaries internationally. It turned out LeRoy didn’t exist. He was dreamed up by 40-year-old punk rocker and phone sex operator, Laura Albert.
