Sundance London Gets Royal Seal of Approval
LONDON – The inaugural Sundance London film and music festival has secured a Royal seal of approval with HRH the Prince of Wales signed up to introduce the global theatrical premiere of Harmony: A New Way of Looking At Our World.
The documentary, by filmmakers Stuart Sender and Julie Bergman Sender, tells the story of how for more than three decades Prince Charles has worked with environmental activists, government and business leaders, artists, architects and visionaries to address the global environmental and economic crisis.
Prince Charles will be joined by Sundance Institute president and founder Robert Redford on stage ahead of the screening April 28 at the O2 Arena, London.
Haromony is narrated by Prince Charles and the screening will be followed by an extended Q&A with the filmmakers as well as Tony Juniper and Ian Skelly, authors of the book that inspired the film.
Redford said: “This important film showcases his [Prince Charles’] diligence, passion and achievement which includes his efforts to amplify the work of social innovators on the front lines of change the world over.”
The Royal premiere is among several special events programmed for Sundance London including an intimate performance by Rufus and Martha Wainwright following the world premiere of Lian Lunson’s film about the music of their mother and the debut theatrical screening of Coming Up For Air, a documentary about rockers Placebo.
Sundance London takes place at the O2 from April 26 through 29.
