Sundance 2009 : New York Director Has His [Third] Day

Sundance2Nelson George, the CAA repped filmmaker of Sundance 2006's Life Support, is making the trek from his Brooklyn home to Park City, Utah for the third time in five years.  And he's not going just for the glitz, the bribe-the-doorguy parties, or Cisero's famous French Onion Soup. 

As frigid December made an appearance, Sundance announced its 2009 competition slate, which [to George's relish] included Good Hair, a documentary he recently produced with Chris Rock.  The film was a unusual undertaking for both men, as it brought them into a world most certainly ruled by the fairer sex -- one that involves innumerable sprays, oils, and the most phenomenal extensions obtainable by [wo]man.

Variety clairvoyantly honored the veteran writer/director at the 'Dance in 2006 as one of the "Top 10 Directors to Watch".  George is certainly living up to that expensive mountaintop open bar.

Additionally, George is in the process of "keeping busy" and producing a series of shorts, all shot in his native New York.  His latest, A Barber's Tale, can be found on YouTube.
