SUNDANCE 2023: 16 films produced by EAVE alumni!

press release

We are proud to announce that 16 films by EAVE producers have been selected for Sundance 2023, including EAVE project MAMI WATA and PUENTES project LA PECERA!

EAVE project MAMI WATA by award winning director C.J. “Fiery” Obasi has been developed at EAVE Producers Workshop 2019 (producer: Oge Obasi).

When the harmony in a village is threatened by outside elements, two sisters must fight to save their people and restore the glory of a mermaid goddess to the land.

PUENTES project LA PECERA is Glorimar Marrero Sánchez's first feature and has been developed at PUENTES 2018 (producer at development stage: Camille Vandenbunder).

As her cancer spreads, Noelia's ultimate decision is to return to her native Vieques, Puerto Rico, and claim her freedom to decide her own fate. She reunites with her friends and family, who are still dealing with the contamination of the U.S. Navy after 60 years of military practices.

Congratulations to all!
