This year will be my first time attending the Sundance Film Festival and as a fan of documentaries, I couldn’t be more excited for some of the films that will be premiering.  Today, we have the first images from the documentaries These Amazing Shadows, Granito, and The InterruptersThese Amazing Shadows is about the history and importance of the National Film Registry.  Granito centers on the turbulent history of Guatemala.  And The Interrupters is about ex-gang members who are now protecting their communities from gang violence.  I’m particularly excited for The Interrupters because it’s from Steve James, the director of the incredible 1994 documentary Hoop Dreams.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  The 2011 Sundance Film Festival runs from January 20 – 30th.

THESE AMAZING SHADOWS

U.S.A. (Directors: Paul Mariano and Kurt Norton) – The history and importance of the National Film Registry unfolds in a roll call of American cinema treasures that reflects the diversity of film, and indeed the American experience itself.
