At Sundance film festivalPhoto: Special to

A team of revolutionaries is out at the Sundance Film Festival right now in Park City, Utah. The team is bringing word about the revolution, Bob Avakian, and the Dialogue on Revolution and Religion: The Fight for Emancipation and the Role of Religion with Bob Avakian and Cornel West to the tens of thousands of filmmakers, producers, actors, and filmgoers. This international festival showcases dozens of independent films coming out this year. We are meeting people in the streets, in the Q&A’s after the screenings, and everywhere we go. We are telling everyone about the upcoming release in March of the film of the Dialogue and asking people who work in the world of movies to watch the trailer and find the ways to get this out into the world, contributing to the funding, distribution and publicity campaign.

From a young revolutionary: “There’s interest—the anger that’s out in society around the police murders, the attacks on abortion—there are more people than usual here with a lot of thinking on the way society works, and many are responding to us.”

The festival’s founder, actor Robert Redford, announced at the opening press conference that the theme of Sundance this year is “Change”— a reflection of what’s breaking open across the country. It’s significant that the real revolution is here in the midst of this crackling atmosphere—finding many people who want to connect. Stay tuned.
