Sundance Institute

Ashland's annual Independent Film Festival returns to screens in the city this weekend, with nearly 100 films all lengths and subjects.  Today we visit with some of the filmmakers displaying their work.

Matthew Heineman is the director of "Cartel Land," about the drug war and carnage in Mexico. 

And Bill and Turner Ross join us to talk about "Western," dealing with similar themes in the cities of Eagle Pass, Texas and Piedras Niegras, Mexico. 

Tune in to hear about the subject matter, and the process of filmmaking.
