The Sundance Channel is currently featuring a really interesting documentary titled In The Sun, which was created to remind Americans about the ongoing struggles of the survivors from Hurricane Katrina. The film also takes a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the In The Sun EP, currently available for purchase through iTunes. All proceeds from the sale of the EP go to Mercy Corps, which is devoted to those still suffering in the wake of the hurricane.
The film was collaboration between Michael Stipe and photographer & Grammy-nominated video director Danny Clinch. It includes the song "In The Sun", which was written by singer/songwriter Joseph Arthur, as well as interviews with Arthur, Coldplay's Chris Martin, former Smashing Pumpkins' guitarist James Iha, Tulane University historian Douglas Brinkley and Katrina survivors. The Sundance Channel is showcasing the short film on its television network as well as online.
