The Tribeca Film Festival 6 Films Playing in the Special Screening Section

 The Trials of Muhammad Ali

The Tribeca Film Festival 6 Films Playing in the Special Screening Section


Here Are the 6 Films Playing in the Special Screening Section of the 2013 Festival
March 6, 2013

The Tribeca Film Festival (TFF), presented by American Express®, is pleased to announce the selections for our  Special Screenings section. This year includes, among others, the reintroduction of the Restored/Rediscovered program with Charles Lane’s Sidewalk Stories and a special screening of Alberi by Michaelangelo Frammartino at VW Dome at MoMA PS1 Performance Dome.

Directed by Michaelangelo Frammartino
(Italy) –World Premiere, Cinematic Installation

Wrapping the audience in waves of sound, Alberi takes us on a circular journey through the Italian countryside. The marvelous natural music at the tops of the eponymous trees makes way for the rhythmic cadence of civilization—men baring axes and the natural clatter of daily life—before their unforgettable return home from the forest. The singular artistry of director Michelangelo Frammartino (Le quatro volte) is beautifully displayed in this mesmerizing homage to nature.

Alberi will run as an installation in the VW Dome at MoMA PS1 from April 18th through the end of the month, with a special event celebrating the world premiere on the evening of Saturday, April 20th.

Sidewalk Stories
Directed and written by Charles Lane
(USA) –Narrative

The low-budget, New York-in-the-’80s movie that proves that silence is not all that golden, Charles Lane’s magnetic Sidewalk Stories is long overdue for rediscovery. Lane plays a sidewalk chalk artist whose efforts to care for an abandoned toddler are confounded by the oddball homeless characters he meets. Black-and-white and mostly silent, the film is an ingenious and whimsical effort by a black artist to give a voice to those who have none.

Herblock - The Black & The White
Directed by Michael Stevens, written by Sara Lukinson and Stevens
(USA) – World Premiere, Documentary

Herbert Block’s career at The Washington Post spanned fifty-five years and thirteen presidents, a timeframe in which he claimed three Pulitzer Prizes, the Medal of Freedom and a significant role in President Nixon’s resignation. Ben Bradlee, Tom Brokaw, Bob Woodward, Carl Bernstein, Jules Feiffer, Ted Koppel and Jon Stewart are among the many commentators bearing witness to Block’s life, work and indelible contribution to American satire in this inviting documentary.

The Trials of Muhammad Ali
Directed by Bill Siegel
(USA) – World Premiere, Documentary

Brash boxer Cassius Clay burst into the American consciousness in the early 1960s, just ahead of the Civil Rights movement. His transformation into the spiritually enlightened heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali is legendary, but this religious awakening also led to a bitter legal battle with the U.S. government after he refused to serve in the Vietnam War. This film reveals the perfect storm of race, religion and politics that shaped one of the most recognizable figures in sports history.

Running From Crazy
Directed by Barbara Kopple
(USA) – New York Premiere, Documentary

Join actress Mariel Hemingway, granddaughter of legendary author Ernest Hemingway, as she examines the mental illness and suicide that colors her family’s history and tries to avert that fate for herself and her daughters. By mixing in remarkable archival footage of the three Hemingway sisters, two-time Academy Award®-winner Barbara Kopple expands one famous family’s deeply embedded truths into a broad picture of the courage it takes to face the past and change your future.

Directed and written by Eric Rochant
(France) – International Premiere, Narrative

Set in the incomparable beauty of Monaco, Eric Rochant’s first feature in seven years follows undercover Russian FSB officer Gregory Lioubov (Jean Dujardin, The Artist) and international trader Alice Redmond (Cécile De France, Hereafter), who has her own secrets to hide. Their relationship sparks a deadly chase to snag Lioubov’s real target, business magnate Ivan Rostovsky (Tim Roth). Also starring Émilie Dequenne, Möbius is a twisting, sexy spy thriller that fittingly leaves you guessing which way is up. Featuring special guest appearances from director Eric Rochant and main actress Cécile de France.

You Never See A Nipple In The Daily Express

You Never See A Nipple In The Daily Express

I’ve seen letters that lust after immigrants’ bloodFrom people in Surrey meaning nothing but good
I’ve seen fairytales disguised as facts
Concerning strikers’ treacherous acts
I’ve seen how democracy is under duress
But I never get a nipple in the Daily Express 
I’ve seen the suede jack boot the cultural cosh White House, Whitehall, whitewash Blood uptown where the vandals rule
Classroom clapping scandal school
They accuse - I confess
I’ve never seen a nipple in the Daily Express 
I’ve seen the red disease that eats awayAll our fortunes, day by day
The Duke of Edinburgh’s threadbare jacket
Can’t afford polo, what, not a packet?
Margaret Thatcher looks stunning, yes
But why no nipples in the Daily Express?
This paper’s boring, mindless and meanFull of pornography, the kind that’s clean
Where William Hickey meets Michael Caine
Again and again and again and again
I’ve seen all kinds of ugliness in hideous excess
But you don’t see nipples in the Daily Express
