The Tribeca Film Festival began yesterday. Just glancing at the scheduled events, I noticed that Paul Miller - aka DJ Spooky - who appeared at the ideaFestival last October, will present new material related to his rework of the famous and infamous film, Birth of a Nation.
There really is almost too much to take in. And the festival is meant to be experienced in person - much like another festival I can recommend. But you may want to look to the list of films to be screened and the video extras, in particular the director interviews entitled "Tell Me Your Story" (click the tab). I'm always interested in listening to creative minds answer the question "why?"
