Sundance Closes, Documentaries Reign

This year’s Sundance Festival closes in a blaze of awards and respect for documentaries. “It was a weak year for the American dramatic competition and a strong one for documentaries, but the contrast between these groups of movies was not just a matter of quality. In any case, the dramatic jury had no trouble handing out prizes – it seems none of the juries did; there were more than 30 awards given.”
