This conversation recorded during the 2022 Sundance Film Festival convenes some of the most exciting, boundaryless artists from a wide cross-section of creative practices. In this conversation, they identify the boxes artists can be confined to, how the culture shapes these boxes and the freedom found in exploding them, as well as to explore the future of cultural creation. Moderator and journalist Alex Jung speaks with multi-hyphenate artists Zackary Drucker (TRANSPARENT), Jeremy O. Harris (SLAVE PLAY), and Roberta Colindrez (FUN HOME). The fearlessness of these transgressive visionaries is a testament to creative integrity and its unbreakable link to independence. 

The original title of this discussion was “Power of Story - Artists Unbound.” The conversation with Roberta Colindrez was recorded separately, edited, and added to the main event recording.
