The feature-length science-based screenplays Incarnations and The Elucidation of Dr. Park have been selected for second-round consideration for the Sundance Institute‘s 2019 Development Track of its Feature Film Program. Incarnations and The Elucidation of Dr. Park are under consideration for the Sundance Screenwriters Lab, Sundance Screenwriters Intensive, Sundance Institute Asian American Fellowship, and Sundance Institute Alfred P. Sloan Fellowship and Commissioning Grant (for projects with scientific and/or technological content).
Incarnations, written by Albert and creatively produced by Alice Cox Neff, is about a successful biologist unable to come to terms with the death of his four-year-old son. After discovering scientific evidence of reincarnation, he embarks on a journey to find his son.
The Elucidation of Dr. Park, written by Alice Cox Neff and creatively produced by Albert, focuses on Gena Park, an Asian-American academic super-star in the final throes of her doctoral program in cancer biology. Driven to succeed, she schedules her defense in time to be eligible for a coveted research position, but hits a crisis of faith after a series of failed experiments and disagreements with her advisor. Gena embarks on a journey to help a student overcome his struggle with depression and in the process rediscovers her joy for science.
Final selections for the 2019 Development Track will be made by December 14, 2018.
