SECTION Hosted Presentations
RUN TIME 90 min
Monday, January 26, 2015 3:00 p.m.–4:30 p.m. Microcinema, New Frontier
Join Canon U.S.A., Inc. for a special screening of documentary Bending the Light from acclaimed director Michael Apted (The Up series, The World is Not Enough, Gorillas in the Mist). The 60-minute film explores the relationship between master craftsmen who create lenses and masters of light who use these lenses for image capture—both artisans in their own right. Bending the Light features never-before-seen footage from inside Canon's Japanese lens factory and intimate interviews with award-winning photographers and cinematographers, including Stephen Goldblatt, ASC, BSC (Get on Up, The Help).
The screening will be followed by a lively Q&A with filmmakers, spotlighting the creative process, the craft of cinematography, and the Canon Cinema EOS lenses and cameras that help bring their stories to life. Visit the Sundance Film Festival website or app for more details.
