“After finishing shooting a feature project titled, ‘Back in the NO’ we wanted to keep the momentum going so we decided to enter a monthly Sundance Challenge. The rules for the challenge were to craft a scene or sequence (written or filmed) where an unexpected guest arrives at a family dinner for Thanksgiving or another significant holiday in your cultural practices. This is what we came up with”, explains Daniel Fort.
