Redford To Screen Winterbottom Film

Legendary actor ROBERT REDFORD's SUNDANCE TV channel has bought the rights to screen a low budget movie by MICHAEL WINTERBOTTOM.

The BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID star is reported to have paid $200,000 (GBP132,000) for IN THIS WORLD, which tells the story of two Afghani teenagers - JAMAL and ENAYATULLAH - who travel to Britain to seek asylum.

The film was shot on digital video, using two boys with no acting experience.

Redford's Sundance Channel, which broadcast's alternative films, moved into theatrical distribution in January (03), and their initial plan is to release In This World in ten key cities across America.

After its theatrical run, the movie will be released on video under the SUNDANCE CHANNEL HOME ENTERTAINMENT label.
