The Gatekeepers and Sarah Polley’s Stories We Tell (pictured) have been named as Spotlight films screening at the upcoming Sundance Film Festival.

Dror Moreh’s documentary The Gatekeepers, which features six former heads of Israel’s Secret Service talking candidly about the successes and failures of the Israel/Palestine peace process, and Sarah Polley’s Stories We Tell, which sees the director investigating her own family secrets, are out-of-competition selections screening in the Spotlight program.

They join the docs previously announced that will screen during Sundance’s U.S. and World Competition programs.

In the Park City at Midnight program, Christina Voros’ kink, which follows employees who work at the porn production facilities of Kink.com, will screen; while in the New Frontier program, Charlie Victor Romeo has been selected. The doc, directed by Robert Berger and Karlyn Michelson, is made up entirely from the ‘black box’ transcripts of six airline emergencies, told in stereoscopic 3D.

“I couldn’t be more pleased to announce the films selected for these sections because they illustrate the tremendous creativity and vibrancy of the independent film community,” said Trevor Groth, director of programming for the Sundance Film Festival.

“Expect the unexpected when you venture down the path of these cinematic sensations.”
