The line-up for the 2008 Sundance Film Festival was announced earlier this week. I just got my hands on a boat load of photos from the films in this year’s festival. We actually have too many photos to feature in just one posting, so we have divided this feature into a few parts.
Our third segment in the series takes a look at the films in the Spectrum category. The list of films includes: Anvil! The True Story Of Anvil, The Black List, Kicking It, The Linguists, Made In America, Where In The World Is Osama Bin Laden?, Young@Heart, August, Baghead, Birds of America, Blind Date, Bottle Shock, Chronic Town, Goliath, A Good Day To Be Black & Sexy, Love Comes Lately, Momma’s Man, Quid Pro Quo, and Red.
