Origineel, authentiek en altijd bijzonder. American indie is filmmaken zonder het grote geld van Hollywood. In dit programma zie je niet alleen de beste onafhankelijke Amerikaanse films, maar ook de sterren van de toekomst. De makers zijn talentvol, veelbelovend en staan aan het begin van hun carrière. Vandaag in de American Indie Competition, morgen op het podium bij de Oscars. Maar wij weten hoe ze begonnen zijn: als filmmakers die dingen nou net even ánders willen doen - en dat blijf je terugzien.
