ZION, a powerful short documentary edited by Cut+Run’s Robert Ryang and directed by Floyd Russ of Tool of NA, will enjoy its world premiere at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. The film is a riveting portrait of Zion Clark, a young wrestler who was born without legs and grew up in foster care.
Ryang and Russ have worked together on numerous projects and have developed a creative shorthand that results in evocative and visually compelling work. This includes award-winning projects such as Ad Council’s “Fans of Love” and SK-II’s “Marriage Market Takeover.”
“As a kid who was really into the indie film scene of the 90s, it’s been a dream to work on a film screening opening night at Sundance,” says Robert Ryang. “Floyd and I spent months playing with all the possible structures to develop a piece that unfolds more abstractly than a traditional narrative. I am excited to see the audience’s response to this unique portrait.”
