Angelika Plano: Q&As with Director Ethan Hawke and star Ben Dickey - Saturday 8/25 following the 12:00pm, 1:00pm, 3:00pm and 6:00pm shows, and Sunday 8/26 following the 12:00pm and 1:00pm shows


BLAZE is a Sundance Film Festival Special Jury Prize winner inspired by the life of Blaze Foley, the unsung songwriting legend of the Texas outlaw music movement that spawned the likes of Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson. The film weaves together three different periods of time, braiding re-imagined versions of Blaze’s past, present and future. The different strands explore his love affair with Sybil Rosen; his last, dark night on earth; and the impact of his songs and his death had on his fans, friends, and foes. The braided storyline terminates in a bittersweet ending that acknowledges Blaze's profound highs and lows, as well as the impressions he made on the people who shared his journey.
