Sundance Film Festival Part One

I have no idea how I'll be able to keep up with this week! We are one day in, and I'm lost in a whirlwind of fabulous mountains and snow, incredible food, good company and great films.

Chris and I flew out of Long Beach with Chris' brother Jon and his girlfriend Michelle on Tuesday morning and arrived somewhere I had never been before: Salt Lake City, Utah. We didn't stay long there, however, since it was only a pit stop on our way to Park City, Utah--the center of events for the Sundance Film Festival. Park City is also a center for ski resorts, and we have the pleasure of staying in a beautiful new resort. Our suite boasts a washer and dryer, 2 bathrooms, living/dining room, seperate bedroom, fireplaces, and an amazing kitchen...hope we'll get the chance to use it a bit!

Tuesday night we saw a screening of Space Tourists, a documentary by a Swiss filmaker about the commercialization of space travel and the face of the Russian space industry. It was a great film, funny and serious, artistic and beautiful. It was followed by a great dinner afterwards that we got to share with the filmaker himself. Chris is jazzed to get a really great movie poster too. It was an amazing start to what is turning out to be a fabulous experience.
