Sundance Film Festival announces awards:
Winner of the U.S. Documentary Special Jury Prize for Grace Under Pressure:
Love Free or Die, directed by Macky Alston
The film is about what happened after the Episcopal Church in New Hampshire came under fire for electing an openly gay man as its bishop.
Alston’s on stage - 15 years ago, I was here with another film. I remember the first time I didn’t get into Sundance. I remember the bathtub. I remember the raging tantrum - my husband taking my photo in the audience can attest to that. And then the day came when we heard we got into Sundance with this film and I was a bigger mess than before.”
