The world famous Sundance Film Festival in Park City Utah is highlighting a special screening of the life of Nina Simone. For eleven days from 22 January until 1 February 2015 one of the biggest  independent film making festivals in the USA will be showing some of the best examples of the genre’s work.

Founded in the eighties by legendary actor Robert Redford the festival is named after his character the Sundance Kid from the movie Burch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid where he starred alongside Paul Newman.  A special highlight of this year’s festival is the world premiere of ‘What Happened, Miss Simone?’ a documentary film about the great singer’s life. Away from the big screen, panel discussions with luminaries such as Robert Redford and George Lucas are on the schedule, as well as film related music events from artistes such as Christina Perri
