Robert Redford, founder of the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, will return to London’s O2 in April for the second edition of its UK spin-off.

The Hollywood star will preside over a line-up that includes a comedy about voice-over artists, a documentary about killer whales and the directorial debut of forthright Canadian singer Peaches.

The line-up for the 16th annual documentary film festival includes;

God Loves Uganda (director: Roger Ross Williams). American Christian evangelists export virulent anti-gay teachings to Sub-Saharan Africa with deadly consequences.

First Cousin Once Removed (director: Alan Berliner). In this stirring tribute, Alan Berliner traces the tenacious lines of connection between him and his cousin Edwin Honig as Edwin slowly succumbs to Alzheimer’s disease.

Free Angela & All Political Prisoners (Director: Shola Lynch). Activist Angela Davis recounts her 1970 arrest and trial, which helped define her life as a revolutionary icon and champion of free speech.

The Last Shepherd (L’ultimo pastore) (Director: Marco Bonfanti). This beautifully shot story of the last travelling shepherd shows that pastoral bliss may be sustained even in industrial northern Italy.
