Salt Lake City, Utah – Thursday, our guest is Oscar winning documentary filmmaker James Marsh. Marsh's films Man on Wire and Project Nim both earned him Sundance accolades, but this year he's at the festival with his latest narrative film. Clive Owen stars in the thriller set in 1990's Belfast, and he says Marsh brought a documentarian's sensibility to the work by "trying to capture the essence of something real." Doug talks to Marsh about Shadow Dancer and about the craft of documentary and dramatic filmmaking.
Shadow Dancer is part of the Premieres category at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. It screens on Thursday 26 January at 9:30 p.m. at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center in Salt Lake City and again on Saturday 28 January at 7:00 p.m. at the Redstone Cinema 7 in Park City.
