    PARK CITY '06 BUZZ DAILY: "Crossing Arizona" Premiere; Friday Night Party Madness; Saturday Parties

    Outside the Holiday Village theater yesterday, a small gathering of press had assembled around a group of people in the parking lot.

The film spotlights the crisis through the personal accounts of Mike Wilson, an Indian living on native land that has become a popular route for migrants, and who work...

    "War Stories" from Sundance

    With the crazed surreality of Park City during Sundance (a film festival in the Utah mountains in the middle of January is not a natural occurence), it's not surprising that rather odd things happen to festival-goers on a regular basis.
