Robert Redford praises Prince Charles’s film at Sundance festival | Film | The Observer

The film, Harmony: A New Way of Looking At Our World, was being given its premiere at the opening night of Sundance London, the first non-US outing for Redford’s successful film and music festival.

The prince said he was “enormously touched and honoured”, not just because Redford had earlier hailed him as “incredible” and invited him to screen Harmony, but because he had brought Sundance to the UK capital. “I think we owe him a huge debt of gratitude for that,” he said.

Harmony, narrated by and starring the prince, tells how he has worked with environmental campaigners, government and business leaders and visionaries to address ecological and economic problems.

The film, which comes two decades after he made an earlier environmental documentary, also spotlights his hopes for a more sustainable, spiritual and harmonious relationship with the planet.

This excerpt from Julie Bergman Sender: Prince Charles and Robert Redford Together for the World Premiere Screening of Harmony:

In his press conference to open the Festival, Robert Redford talked about why he wanted to screen the movie at the festival:

“HRH The Prince of Wales and I share a dedication to preserving the environment and to identifying innovative and yet realistic ways to do so. This important film showcases his diligence, passion and achievement, which include his efforts to amplify the work of social innovators on the front lines of change the world over. In this wonderful journey he shows us what can be an inspired future… Working together seemed like a natural fit.”
