Sundance Makes the `Scene'

With its new original series, Sundance Channel will take its viewers behind
the scenes of theatricals. Actually, make that a scene -- singular.

Like the channel's first original series, Conversations in World
Cinema
, Anatomy of a Scene aspires to provide viewers with a
perspective on the creative process of filmmaking, in this case by taking an
extensive look at one movie scene from the point of view of the director and
such other key collaborators as the cinematographer, art director and
screenwriter.

Sundance will bow the monthly, half-hour series on the first Sunday of each
month, beginning June 3 at 7:30 p.m., with co-writers, directors and stars
Jennifer Jason Leigh and Alan Cumming discussing a scene from The Anniversary
Party
.

In the second episode July 1, Cameron Mitchell, the writer, director and
star, will take apart a segment from Sundance Film Festival Audience winner
Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
