Sundance Institute and The O2 announced today that BRIT Award-nominated psychedelic pop band Guillemots and Academy Award-winning musician/actor Glen Hansard will join the Opening Night Event An Evening with Robert Redford and T Bone Burnett at the first-ever Sundance London film and music festival on 26 April at The O2. Guillemots and Glen Hansard will perform separately during the event.
If something goes wrong during your screening, it’s always good to have a song in your back pocket. So when John Carney’s [www.imdb.com] once ran into projection problems Sunday night, the two leads Glen Hansard [www.imdb.com] and Marketa Irglova [www.imdb.com] took to the stage to entertain the audience as the theater fixed the mechanical problem. How apropos, since ONCE is a musical — or as director Carney calls it “video album” — about the musical relationship between Czech immigrant and local Dublin boy. After the projector was fixed and the film played, the duo returned to stage for the Q&A — and some more songs.
