Difret

Nate von Zumwalt

With the announcement of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival program forthcoming, we round out this year’s slate of Sundance-supported films with a small but vigorous pair of theatrical releases – and a crop of Festival favorites coming to DVD and Blu-Ray in time for the holidays. Greg Barker’s We Are The Giant continues to gain pertinence with the ongoing detainment and trial of one of the film’s primary subjects, activist Maryam Al-Khawaja (read more here), while the Audience Award winner in World Dramatic Competition, Difret, finally brings its engrossing tale of abduction and forced marriage in Ethiopia to theaters.

A singular force within the documentary film world with a global reach, Diane Weyermann passed away at age 66 after battling cancer. Over the course of her 30-year career as a funder and an executive, her work elevated the documentary form and expanded its cultural impact.
