Since it’s founding in 2003, the Tribeca Festival™ has emerged as a leading showcase for artists to feature their work accompanied by talks, panels, and other opportunities to interact with the public. In particular, their documentary series has proven to be particularly innovative.
Last year, they launch a virtual component of this festival for those who cannot attend this event in person. This year, the 2022 Tribeca Festival™ will once again host Tribeca at Home – an online platform that provides festival-goers from around the country the opportunity to share and engage in the Tribeca experience. This year’s offering will be available online from June 9 through June 26, 2022.
In pursuing Tribeca at Home’s offerings, following are some of the films that caught my eye as particularly noteworthy:
Billion Dollar Babies: The True Story of the Cabbage Patch Kids, the unbelievable real life story of Cabbage Patch Kids and how they ushered in the Black Friday sale craze, executive produced and narrated by Neil Patrick Harris.
Butterfly in the Sky, executive produced by Whoopi Goldberg and featuring LeVar Burton, highlights the 25-year history of “Reading Rainbow.”
Carol & Johnny, the unbelievable, decade-spanning, and surprisingly heart-warming true story of two of America’s most successful bank robbers.
The Courtroom, a legal thriller starring BD Wong, Marsha Stephanie Blake, Michael Braun, Michael Chernus, and Kristin Villanueva.
Jerry & Marge Go Large, a charming tale based on a true story starring Bryan Cranston, Annette Bening, and Rainn Wilson.
Kaepernick & America, a documentary that explores former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s protest at the center of swelling racial tension in America.
Leave No Trace, a documentary executive produced by Ron Howard and Brian Glazer executive unpacks the sexual abuse scandals within the Boy Scouts.
