2019 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: #63. Jessica Oreck – One Man Dies a Million Times (Docu)

Pretty much on a breakneck pace since she introduced us to Beetle Queen Conquers Tokyo in 2009 (here is our interview), there has been a longer gestation period for One Man Dies a Million TimesJessica Oreck (Aatsinki: The Story of Arctic Cowboys, The Vanquishing of the Witch Baba Yaga) proposes a docu slash fiction that comes equipped with subtitles and cinematography by celluloid specialist Sean Price Williams. Selected as a participant in 2017 American Film Festival’s U.S in Progress in Wroclaw, and landed the Tribeca Film Institute: Filmmaker Fund: Production Award the same year. We’re guessing that this hybrid will be circling a Sundance play date, despite the fest not playing her feature length films, she did show an earlier work in short film Venus in 2011.

Gist: A true story, set in the future. About seeds and genetic diversity, about growth and decay, about love and war, about hunger of all kinds. About what it means to be human, even when all your humanity is stripped away.
