What Kind of Content Can I Expect From the Sundance Now On-Demand Library?
Sundance Now was created through a merger of Sundance Now’s indie video-on-demand service and the cable channel’s documentary streaming service DocClub. That blend of content is still what you’ll find from today’s Sundance Now.
Documentaries on Sundance Now
Sundance Now subscribers will find about fifty documentary films as well as several documentary TV series.
Man on Wire is the award-winning film about Phillipe Petit’s daring 1974 attempt to walk a high wire strung between the twin towers of the World Trade Center. The documentary is as compelling for the suspense of Petit’s stunt as it is poignant for the loss of the towers thirty seven years later.
Cold Blooded: The Clutter Family Murders is a four-episode documentary series about the murders that inspired Truman Capote’s true crime work “In Cold Blood”. The directors combine interviews, archival footage and re-enactments to “separate fact from sensationalism”.
TV Shows on Sundance Now
Sundance Now has adapted Umberto Eco’s mystery novel The Name of the Rose into an eight episode miniseries starring James Turturro. His character, William of Baskerville, is a Franciscan monk who stumbles onto a murder at a Benedictine Abbey. Produced for Italy’s national broadcaster Rai 1, Sundance Now secured exclusive streaming rights.
Rosehaven is a more light-hearted option from Down Under. The romantic comedy is set in Australia’s Tasmania where childhood friends Daniel and Emma reconnect after returning home and must learn to cope with the “charming, but deeply eccentric” townfolk.
Films on Sundance Now
