Dina

2017 Sundance Film Festival Audience Award Winner

Editor Sofía Subercaseaux (who has also cut dramatic features such as Christine and Crystal Fairy) sifted through some 600 hours of footage in shaping this ingeniously structured portrait of an everyday life as engrossing and surprising as any fictional mystery. Chatty 48-year-old Dina Buno struggles with what her mother calls “a smorgasbord” of mental issues, including anxiety and autism. Directed with great compassion by Antonio Santini and Dan Sickles, the film follows preparations for Dina’s second wedding, this one to Scott, a meek Wal-Mart employee with Asperger’s Syndrome. Dina deepens as it goes along, slowly unfolding to reveal the fate of her first husband, the story behind those nasty scars on Dina’s back and it eventually expands to include the couple’s friends from all over the spectrum. That the movie is so funny without ever being funny at these people’s expense is something very special indeed. Courtesy: Sean Burns, Spliced Personality
