Actor Robert Redford's daughter doesn’t back away from questions about bias regarding a decision by the Sundance film festival—founded by her pop—to show the first movie she's directed. "I've been involved in other films that haven't made it, and it's a democratic selection process," Amy Redford, 37, tells the Salt Lake Tribune.
Connections can be more of a curse than a blessing, she adds. "You have to work twice as hard to prove you're not just there for your handout," she said. Her film, The Guitar, presents the story of a young woman who rediscovers her life, and the desire to make music, after a cancer diagnosis. Her dad said the movie was picked on its merits. "I'm pretty proud," he added.
