Who Won Sundance?

Who says cinematic schlock is the specialty only of the big studios? At the Sundance Film Festival this year, the Grand Jury Prize was awarded to Push: Based on the Novel by Sapphire, which Nikki Finke describes as "the redemptive story of Precious Jones, a young girl in Harlem struggling to overcome tremendous obstacles and discover her own voice." Push shared the prize with We Live in Public, a documentary about "the Internet's revolutionary impact on human interaction." Winners in other categories include documentaries from Chile and the United Kingdom, and Afghan Star, a feature film about a pop idol in Afghanistan.
