FESTIVAL STARS LOW-BUDGET FILMS

Black filmmakers Wendell B. Harris and Charles Burnett won top honors at the Sundance United States Film Festival with two low-budget, deeply personal movies.

"Chameleon Street," a quirky look at a peerless con man, took writer-director-star Harris four years and nearly four dozen investors to make.

"To Sleep With Anger," an alternately haunting and comic account of a family crisis, was completed by writer-director Burnett just days before the festival began.

Neither "To Sleep With Anger" nor "Chameleon Street" have distributors, but their victories are likely to propel them to theaters soon.
