Sundance unveils its 2007 line-up

Variety reports that Sundance has announced its 2007 line-up, and if we cherry-pick the films with Christian themes, we get:

  1. Teeth,” directed and written by Mitchell Lichtenstein, a conceptually provocative yarn about a devoutly Christian high school girl (Jess Wexler) who finds she possesses a “physical advantage” over men when she becomes the victim of a sexual assault. John Hensley, Josh Pais, Hale Appleman and Lenny von Dohlen also appear.

  2. For the Bible Tells Me So,” directed by Daniel Karslake, which looks at five conservative Christian families as a way of analyzing how the religious right has tried to use the Bible to stigmatize gays and advance the separation between church and state.
  3. The Island” (Russia), directed by Pavel Lounguine and written by Dmitri Sobolev, a drama bout an odd monk at a small Russian Orthodox monastery.
  4. The Monastery: Mr. Vig and the Nun” (Denmark), directed by Pernille Rose Gronkjaer, about how an 82-year-old male virgin and a Russian nun transform the former’s castle into an Orthodox Russian monastery.

Looking forward to reading the reviews when the festival comes.
