    Laurie Anderson to Serve on Sundance Film Festival Jury
    Canal Street Communications

    Laurie Anderson will be among the jury members for the 2019 Sundance Film Festival, which begins next Thursday, January 24, and runs through February 3 in Park City, Salt Lake City, and Sundance, Utah. She will serve as a jury of one for the NEXT Innovator's Award. Jury members in the festival's other categories include Damien Chazelle, Phyllis Nagy, Tessa Thompson, Jane Campion, and Corey Stoll, among others.

    "Sundance Institute will gather 20 celebrated and revered expert voices across film, art, culture and science to award feature-length and short films shown at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival," say the organizers, "with 12 prizes, announced at a ceremony February 2 that will be livestreamed at sundance.org."

    Laurie Anderson's latest album, Landfall, her first collaboration with Nonesuch label mates Kronos Quartet, has been nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music / Small Ensemble Performance and was included on 2018 year's best lists from Uncut, Guardian, The Quietus, and New Sounds, among others. Inspired by her experience of Hurricane Sandy, Landfall juxtaposes lush electronics and traditional strings by Kronos with Anderson's powerful descriptions of loss, from water-logged pianos to disappearing animal species to Dutch karaoke bars. The Washington Post calls it "riveting, gorgeous."
