Robert Redford Talks the Collapse of Mainstream Media

First things first: at 75, actor, director, and Sundance Film Festival founder Robert Redford is as virile and dashing as ever.

Named after his character from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Sundance was known as the U.S./Utah Film Festival when he founded it in 1978. In 1981, the festival moved to Park City, and in 1984, it was renamed the Sundance Film Festival. It soon became the premier showcase for independent film.
