UPDATE: Irene Taylor Brodsky’s Audience Award winning documentary HEAR AND NOW [festival.sundance.org] documents what happens when a pair of deaf parents decide to undergo cochlear implant surgery in order to hear the world again. The twist, however, is that the subjects aren’t just any pair of parents; they are Brodsky’s own mom and dad, Paul and Sally Taylor.

Tonight the Awards Ceremony marked the unofficial end of the Sundance Film Festival. And the participants demonstrated as much drama, passion, and comic turns as many of the films the awards were honoring. One award even involved a suspense-filled car chase as Jess Weixler, who was receiving a Special Jury Prize for Acting raced from the Salt Lake City airport to get to the ceremony. While she missed her name being called out, she made it in time to still get on stage to give a charming and breathless acceptance speech.
