Film synopsis: After a career spent mining his music from the shadows, the actions of one fan create a chain reaction for the lead singer of a black metal band.
"We're thrilled to be returning to Park City with our newest film, 'Black Metal'," the filmmakers state. "Sundance has been an amazing home to us this last year. We're so humbled by their support of our films and our careers."
The 2012 Sundance short "Hellion" went on to play over 40 festivals and is currently in development as a feature film partnered with the Sundance Institute. Kelly Williams, producer of "Hellion", "Black Metal" and Yen Tan's 2013 Sundance feature film "Pit Stop" was a 2012 Sundance creative producing lab fellow with the feature version of "Hellion".
