The Sundance Film Festival has announced the addition of a world premiere film directed by Roy E. Disney’s daughter, Abigail Disney.

What’s Happening:

  • Just added to the Sundance Film Festival line-up is The American Dream and Other Fairy Tales, which is directed by Abigail Disney and Kathleen Hughes.
  • The description for the film is as follows: “Abigail Disney looks at America's dysfunctional and unequal economy and asks why the American Dream has worked for the wealthy, yet is a nightmare for people born with less. As a way to imagine a more equitable future, Disney uses her family's story to explore how this systemic injustice took hold.”
  • The American Dream was added to the Sundance line-up along with Phoenix Rising, directed by Amy Berg.
  • The Festival will take place online at Festival.Sundance.org; on The Spaceship, a bespoke immersive platform; and in person at seven Satellite Screens venues around the country during the Festival’s second weekend.
  • The Festival takes place January 20–30, 2022.
  • Ticket packages are currently on sale, while Single Film Ticket sales will begin on January 13 at 10 a.m. MT (January 12 at 10 a.m. MT for membership pre-sale).
