    PARK CITY '07 DAILY DISPATCH | With a Spirit of Protest, Sundance and Redford Open '07 Fest

    "Well, hello," Robert Redford casually told a packed Egyptian Theater as he walked onto the stage Thursday afternoon in Park City, UT. Without fanfare or an introduction of any sort, he made his way over to a chair and -- holding a cup of coffee as flash bulbs popped furiously -- Redford leisurely reflected on what the Sundance Film Festival has become, during a press conference. Later on Thursday, in front of a full house at the Eccles Theater for the 2007 Sundance Film Festival opening night screening, Redford evoked a few memories of past festivals, but quickly added more provocative comments in line with the spirit of protest seen in Bret...
