Organizers on Wednesday announced a lineup of 14 movies for Sundance London, a four-day British offshoot of the Utah-based indie film festival.
The April 26 through 29 event will include Julie Delpy’s relationship comedy “2 Days in New York,” Youssef Delara and Michael D. Olmos’ hip-hop drama “Filly Brown,” So Yong Kim’s road movie “For Ellen” and Josh Radnor’s campus romance “Liberal Arts.”
Documentaries include “Finding North,” a study of hunger in America; “Under African Skies,” which follows Paul Simon back to South Africa for the 25th anniversary of his “Graceland” album; and “The House I Live In,” a look at the social, human and financial costs of the “war on drugs” that won the top documentary prize at the Utah festival in January.
Robert Redford, who rose to fame in films including “The Sting” and “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” founded the annual Sundance Film Festival in Utah to promote independent filmmaking.
Mr. Redford said the movies in the London lineup were American productions that “speak to universal experiences and global challenges.”
The event at London’s O2 Arena also will feature live music performances, discussions and panels.
