Jennifer Fox '77, Nathaniel Kahn '81, and Myles Pettengill '01 brought their talents to this year's Sundance Film Festival.
Myles Pettengill '01 and Nathaniel Kahn '81 had to go all the way to Sundance to meet each other and discover that they have a lot in common: they're both GFS lifers, and their hearts and careers are both rooted in the film industry. The photo above was taken just after they learned of their shared connections.
Myles was working as a Sundance Portrait Studio photographer, and Nathaniel's latest documentary, The Price of Everything, was nominated in the US Documentary category. The Price of Everything dives deep into the contemporary art world, with unprecedented access to pivotal artists and the white-hot international art market.
Jennifer Fox '77 also received big buzz and a nomination for The Tale, a deeply moving and personal story of sexual assault, which transpired over a summer at a Carolina horse farm. (See "Jennifer Fox's drama 'The Tale' brings #MeToo to Sundance" in the Los Angeles Times).
HBO just acquired both Jennifer's and Nathaniel's films for domestic distribution, so look out for them on HBO soon. (See "The 22 Films Acquired For U.S. Distribution At The 2018 Sundance Film Festival" in Forbes.)
Congratulations to these extraordinary alumni who continue to share their stories and their craft.
