Power of Story: Visions of Independence With George Lucas and Robert Redford at 2015 Sundance Film Festival

George Lucas and Robert Redford

The hottest ticket at Sunday 2015 Sundance Film Festival

People were willing to give you whatever they had just to get a ticket to this event. I on the other hand I already have my ticket and I was very lucky to get one!

Why were people on the edge of madness over such an event?

Because of the two men that would be speaking that night at the Egyptian Theater on Main Street, in Park City, Utah for the 2015 Sundance Film Festival Power Of The Story weekend series.

Those men were Mr. Robert Redford and Mr. George Lucas.

People waited in the absolute cold to hear these true icons speak. When you finally got inside the theater suddenly you forgot just how cold it was or that you had been standing outside for a long time.The sheer magnitude and stature of these two men seem to melt away the cold you were feeling and transport you to a place of reverence. Standing before us were the men that we had grown up with and seen their films. Who we admired for how they had contributed to the artist and independent film community. Yes, they were quite a bit older, but time seem to have made them even better like a fine wine. The interview was done by none other then Leonard Maltin! Mr. Robert Redford and Mr. George Lucas shared their wisdom, personal stories, and knowledge about filmmaking and the industry. To to be able to listen to such vast insight was both a joy and a valued treasure.
