The 2019 MovieMaker Sundance Survey: Eleven Sundance-Selected Films, and Their Mountain-Bound Makers

Directing

Sister Aimee (NEXT)

Who: Samantha Buck and Marie Schlingmann, writer-directors

Logline: In 1926, America’s most famous evangelist is looking for a way out and finds herself on a wild road trip to Mexico.

Things that influenced this film were: Paper Moon, Something Wild, and maybe the 2016 election.

The most expensive thing in our budget was: Old Ginger, our period car.

The biggest lesson we learned making this movie was: hire great actors. They can teach you something new about your characters, they’ll allow you to make your days, and in a big ensemble, there are no unimportant parts. To paraphrase Jonathan Demme: Whoever’s on screen is the star of the movie.

When we heard we got into Sundance we: Conference-called our producers and Anna Margaret Hollyman and laughed and cried.
