A Sundance Sale, Revisited: Miguel Arteta Looks Back on the 20th Anniversary of ‘Star Maps’

23 January 2017 8:26 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Sundance deals accrue such legend that it’s easy to forget the ones that materialize out of nowhere. Such was the case 20 years ago to this day, when Miguel Arteta’s first feature “Star Maps” premiered at the festival and landed a $2.5 million deal with Fox Searchlight.

The movie, which tells the story of a Latin American teen (Douglas Spain) who works as a bisexual hustler while harboring dreams of movie stardom, became an overnight sensation at Sundance — and also turned Arteta into a permanent member of the festival family. Since then he’s returned with “Chuck & Buck” (2000) and with “The Good Girl” (2002); tonight he screens his latest effort, “Beatriz at Dinner” out of competition.

The “Star Maps” deal also marked a historic moment for this site. At roughly a year old, IndieWire was establishing itself as a nimble digital upstart that had accrued popularity at Sundance, where it published a daily print edition. »

Exclusive: ‘Killing Fields’ Season 2 Focuses on Detectives’ Commitment to Solve 1997 Cold Case

3 January 2017 10:55 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Killing Fields is back! And detectives Rodie Sanchez and Aubrey St. Angelo are still hard at work, trying to solve the 1997 homicide of former Louisiana State University student Eugenie Boisfontaine.

Shot in real time, the first season of Discovery Channel’s true-crime docuseries followed Sanchez as he partnered with St. Angelo to finally bring justice to Boisfontaine’s family 20 years later. Unfortunately, despite several breaks in the case, Boisfontaine’s murder remained unsolved by the end of the first six episodes.

“It was definitely a disappointment that we didn’t get further in the first season,” co-executive producer Tom Fontana (Homicide: Life on the Street) tells Et ahead of season two, which premieres Tuesday, Jan. 3. (Watch an exclusive clip from the premiere above.) “But in the second, we pick up the case and things start moving along.”
