OGDEN -- Saturday's Sundance Awards ceremony determined the winning films that will screen at Peery's Egyptian Theater tonight.
Film descriptions are from the Sundance Film Festival guide.
* "The Green Prince" will play at 6:30 p.m. at the Egyptian, 2415 Washington Blvd. This film won the audience award for World Cinema: Documentary.
The film follows the true story of a Palestinian in Ramallah, Mosab Hassan Yousef, who grows up angry and ready to fight Israel. Arrested for smuggling guns at the age of 17, he's interrogated by the Shin Bet, Israel's security service, and sent to prison.
Shocked by Hamas's ruthless tactics in the prison and the organization's escalating campaign of suicide bombings outside, Yousef agrees to spy for Israel. For him, there is no greater shame. For his Shin Bet handler, Gonen, there is no greater prize: "operating" the oldest son of a founding member of Hamas. "The Green Prince" is a story of two men, spy and handler, whom history insists must be adversaries.
* "Low Down" will screen at 9:30 p.m. at the Egyptian. This film won the Cinematography Award in the U.S. Dramatic category.
Told through the wise eyes of his young daughter, Amy, "Low Down" chronicles the torrid, true life of jazz pianist Joe Albany. Born into her beloved father's unorthodox segment of society, Amy's improvisational adolescence evolves in the shadow of Joe's struggle between his musical genius and heroin addiction. As young Amy sifts through the demimonde of artists, musicians, and vagabonds who permeate her apartment building, she attempts to cling to the deep-rooted love she shares with her deteriorating father. Stars are John Hawkes, Elle Fanning, Glenn Close, Peter Dinklage and Flea.
