7:00PM – 8:30PM
Starring Amelia Workman and Pernell Walker (The Butler)
Also, it’s free and open to the public (no tickets needed)! There should be a really interesting seamless sort of organic meta feel in terms of the relationship between audience and performer, which will hopefully get some interesting and healthy conversations started. I’m really excited to explore that dynamic while watching the sun set over Fort Greene Park. I’d love it if you could join me.

THE RED ROAD is a hard-hitting drama that revolves around a local cop (Henderson) struggling to keep his family together while simultaneously policing two clashing communities: the small town where he grew up and the neighboring mountains, home of a Native American tribe. After a terrible tragedy and coverup occurs involving the cop’s wife (Nicholson), an unholy alliance is forged between the cop and Phillip Kopus (Momoa), a dangerous member of the tribe that will come back to haunt all involved.
As was previously announced, THE RED ROAD has been picked up for six one-hour episodes and hails from acclaimed writer Aaron Guzikowski (Contraband, Prisoners) and veteran producer Sarah Condon (“Bored to Death”). The series will be executive produced by Guzikowski and Condon, and Bridget Carpenter (“Friday Night Lights,” “Parenthood”) will serve as executive producer and showrunner. Award winning director James Gray (The Immigrant, Two Lovers, We Own The Night) will direct the first episode. THE RED ROAD is Sundance Channel’s second wholly owned original scripted series; its first was the acclaimed RECTIFY, which returns for a second season in 2014.
Sundance Channel recently received a record ten Primetime Emmy® nominations for its original scripted miniseries TOP OF THE LAKE and RESTLESS.
