KPCW kicks off coverage of the 2016 Sundance Film Festival's filmmakers with a two-hour special edition of The Sundance Reel. For 51 weeks of the year, Chris Cherniak and Nell Larson are the hosts of KPCW's This Green Earth, our local program on sustainability, green living and the science behind environmental trends. This week, however, they do double duty and take on the filmmakers of the Sundance Film Festival.

KPCW

Today on The Sundance Reel, Leslie Thatcher invites KPCW film and book reviewer Barb Bretz to talk movies. Barb has taken on the unenviable goal of watching 35 films this festival and has already knocked out 25. That averages more than four films a day, but keeps them straight by reviewing each one immediately on her blog.
