American Hollywood royalty teamed up with British royalty as Robert Redford appeared in London to promote a documentary on Prince Charles’ latest environmental projects.
Redford praised the heir to the British throne, speaking Thursday at the launch of the first London Sundance film and music festival.
He says Charles has been committed for a long time, which I greatly admire, to sustainability and environmental conservation and said working together seemed like a natural fit.
Sundance London will host the royal premiere on Saturday of Harmony: A New Way of Looking at Our World. The documentary by filmmakers Stuart Sender and Julie Bergman Sender maps out three decades of environmental work by the prince.
HBO is producing a documentary on the first President George Bush to debut two days after his 88th birthday in June.
Titled 41, the film about the 41st president is being produced by Jerry Weintraub, a friend of the Bush family and himself the subject of My Way, another HBO documentary. Jeffrey Roth, who made The Wonder of It All about Apollo moon walkers, is directing and writing the film.
It was made between September 2009 and February 2011.
HBO said Friday that Bush, father of the 43rd president, shares anecdotes about his youth, various jobs and term as president from 1989 to 1993. Its first airing will be June 14.
