Sundance Institute Summer Film Series: Senna @ Red Butte Amphitheatre
Jul 31 @ 7:00 pm
Sundance Institute Summer Film Series: Senna @ Red Butte Amphitheatre

Directed by Asif Kapadia
2011 Sundance Film Festival Official Selection, World Cinema Audience Award Documentary

The story of Ayrton Senna, perhaps the greatest race car driver who ever lived, is an epic tale that literally twists at every turn. In the mid 1980s, Senna, a young, gifted driver, exploded onto the world of Formula One racing. As a Brazilian in a predominantly European sport, a purist in a world polluted with backroom deals, and a man of faith in an arena filled with cynicism, Senna had to fight hard—both on and off the track. Facing titanic struggles, he conquered Formula One and became a global icon who was idolized in his home country.

This film screening is presented free to the public.

Sundance Institute Summer Film Series: Muscle Shoals @ City Park
Aug 2 @ 7:00 pm
Sundance Institute Summer Film Series: Muscle Shoals @ City Park

Directed by Greg “Freddy” Camalier
2013 Sundance Film Festival Official Selection

In a tiny Alabama town with the curious name of Muscle Shoals, something miraculous sprang from the mud of the Tennessee River. A group of unassuming, yet incredibly talented, locals came together and spawned some of the greatest music of all time: “Mustang Sally,” “I Never Loved a Man,” “Wild Horses,” and many more. During the most incendiary periods of racial hostility, white folks and black folks came together to create music that would last for generations and gave birth to the incomparable “Muscle Shoals sound.” At the heart of the story is Rick Hall; overcoming crushing hardship, he managed to entice talent like Aretha Franklin and Wilson Pickett to come and record what became their hit albums, backed up by the funkiest white men ever—the homegrown house band, the Swampers. As the word spread about the electrifying musical chemistry in this unexpected place, the likes of Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, the Staples Singers, the Allman Brothers Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Simon and Garfunkel magnetically followed suit. Interviewing an incredible roster of musicians, director Greg Camalier unearths a rich history of this unheralded gold mine of American music.

This film screening is presented free to the public, presented in collaboration with the Kimball Arts Center and Park City Performing Arts Foundation.
