Head to the Beach in Exclusive Clip from Sundance Winner ‘Dina’

Written by on January 4, 2018 


As a “bomb cyclone” touches down on the east coast, we can think of no better respite from the cold than taking a trip to the beach, courtesy of the Sundance Grand Jury Prize-winning documentary Dina. Dan Sickles and Antonio Santini’s documentary Dina tells a love story of a unique stripe. The film follows Dina Buno, a 49-year-old living on disability, suffering from a neurological disorder, and her courtship with Scott Levin, a Walmart greeter with Asperger syndrome. Today we’re pleased to present an exclusive clip, featuring Scott and Dina on the beach and a rendition of Freddy Fender’s “Before the Next Teardrop Falls.”

Dina is a sometimes uncomfortable film to watch, especially as we wonder how certain moments were constructed: is this a performative piece or vérité? And does it matter? We can’t forget Robert Flaherty was a kind of con man in his own right,” John Fink said in our review. “Dina will certainly provide fodder for discussion on documentary ethics, but what I do appreciate is its simplicity. It invites us in, allowing us to not only eavesdrop but intimately connect with folks we may not otherwise get to know as we pass by them in Walmart or on the bus.”

Check out the exclusive clip below.


Dina arrives on digital and on demand on January 9.
