    Having a film short accepted at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival is a dream come true for many indie filmmakers—especially if early buzz suggests it could take the top prize. Such was the case for French filmmaker Joséphine Point and What Red Balloon?, Point’s incisive, twenty-minute social critique of globalization. But when her distributor colorized portions of the film without her express consent, Point was outraged and embarrassed, but hardly surprised, when her film was the flop of Sundance. Colorization had changed her film’s theme to such a degree that it no longer made the strong social statement that the plaintiff intended, and her repeated invocation of droit moral—the European legal concept of artists’ “moral right” to have their artistic works remain as they created them—fell on the deaf ears of counsel and the arbitration board assembled to settle the dispute.
