SUNDANCE NATIVE LAB WRITER'S WORKSHOP PARTICIPANT
Congratulations to our writer director, Christopher Kahunahana on participating in this year's Sundance Native Lab Writers Workshop in Santa Fe, New Mexico. As a participant, Chris was able to receive direct mentorship from Joan Tewkesbury.
Joan Tewkesbury (born April 8, 1936) is an American film and television director, screenwriter, producer and actress. She had a long association with the celebrated director Robert Altman, and wrote the screenplays for two of his films, Thieves Like Us (1974) and Nashville (1975). Nashville has been called "Altman's masterpiece", and Tewkesbury's screenplay was widely honored including a nomination for the BAFTA Award for Best Screenplay.
