Tribeca Film Festival Collection

  • CODE
    CODE | Director: Robin Hauser Reynolds  
    Year of production: 2015| Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    CODE exposes the dearth of American female and minority software engineers and explores the reasons for this gender gap, raising the question: What would society gain from having more women and minorities in the tech industry, and how do we get there?
    Tech jobs are growing three times faster than our colleges are producing computer science graduates. By 2020, there will be one million unfilled software engineering jobs in the USA.

  • Do Not Resist
    Do Not Resist | Director: Craig Atkinson  
    Year of production: 2016| Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    DO NOT RESIST is an urgent and powerful exploration of the rapid militarization of the police in the United States.
    Starting on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, as the community grapples with the death of Michael Brown, DO NOT RESIST – the directorial debut of DETROPIA cinematographer Craig Atkinson – offers a stunning look at the current state of policing in America and a glimpse into the future. This Tribeca Film Festival winner for Best Documentary puts viewers in the center of the action, – from a ride-along with a South Carolina SWAT team to inside a police training seminar that teaches the importance of “righteous violence”.

  • Food Chains
    Food Chains | Director: Sanjay Rawal  
    Year of production: 2014| Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    There is more interest in food these days than ever, yet there is very little interest in the hands that pick it. Farmworkers, the foundation of our fresh food industry, are routinely abused and robbed of wages. In extreme cases they can be beaten, sexually harassed or even enslaved – all within the borders of the United States.
    Food Chains reveals the human cost in our food supply and the complicity of large buyers of produce like fast food and supermarkets.

  • Imaginary Witness
    Imaginary Witness | Director: Daniel Anker  
    Year of production: 2004| Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    Told through first-hand accounts of directors, actors, writers, and producers this documentary asks hard questions about the uneasy relationship between American popular culture and the Holocaust.

    We find out about the difficulties and responsibility of filmmakers as they re-imagine for the screen the horrors of Nazi Germany and how film itself has the power to shape and reflect history and memory.

  • Powerless
    Powerless | Director: Fahad Mustafa   Deepti Kakkar  
    Year of production: 2013| Country of production: India | Language: English, Urdu (with full English subtitles available)

    Would you risk your life to flip a switch?
    Shariq, a 22-year-old electrician living in Kanpur, is renowned for his prowess in stealing electricity. In the face of day-long power-cuts, he runs illegal connections from one neighborhood to another so that homes, factories and businesses are not left in the dark. Meanwhile, the city administration is renewing its efforts to clamp down on power-theft, which costs them millions of rupees in losses each year. Powerless sheds light on the opposing corners of this political ring, from an electrical Robin Hood to the myopic utility company.

  • Thank You For Playing
    Thank You For Playing | Director: David Osit   Malika Zouhali-Worrall  
    Year of production: 2015| Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    When Ryan, a video game designer, learns that his young son Joel has cancer, he and his wife begin documenting their emotional journey in the form of an unusual and poetic video game. The result is a game called “That Dragon, Cancer” – an astoundingly honest and innovative work of art about the universal complexity of grief. Thank You For Playing follows Ryan and his family over two years, offering an intimate, revolutionary glimpse into how the fusion of art and technology – in this case, a video game – can document profound human experiences in the modern age.

  • Thieves By Law
    Thieves By Law | Director: Alexander Gentelev  
    Year of production: 2010| Country of production: Germany, Israel | Language: Russian (with full English subtitles available)

    Made famous by the feature film Eastern Promises, former heads of Russia’s criminal underworld, the vori v zakone, (Thieves By Law) share their story for the first time. The thugs who transformed into reputable businessmen reveal how they came to influence Russia’s economy as it emerged from decades of Soviet rule, and how they used their vast wealth to build up a political base in a land that once treated them as common criminals.

  • Cartel Land
    Cartel Land | Director: Matthew Heineman  
    Year of production: 2015| Country of production: Mexico, USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    In this Academy Award Nominee for Best Documentary, director Matthew Heineman and executive producer Kathryn Bigelow (“The Hurt Locker”, “Zero Dark Thirty”) gain unprecedented, on-the-ground access to the riveting stories of two modern-day vigilante groups and their shared enemy – the murderous Mexican drug cartels.

  • Love and Engineering
    Love and Engineering | Director: Tonislav Hristov  
    Year of production: 2014| Country of production: Bulgaria, Finland, Germany | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    Atanas, a Bulgarian computer engineer, claims to have hacked love. Now married, he undertakes the challenge to find love for his shy and lonely fellow engineers by sharing the scientific formula he developed to find the perfect wife. Atanas uses these engineers as his guinea pigs; he lectures them on his ideas and offers remote guidance during their dates so that they may test his theories. Are there scientific rules to attraction, sex and love? And if there are, do we really want to know them?

  • Inequality For All
    Inequality For All | Director: Jacob Kornbluth  
    Year of production: 2013| Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    “We make the rules of the economy – and we have the power to change those rules.” – Robert Reich
    A passionate argument on behalf of the middle class, INEQUALITY FOR ALL features Robert Reich – professor, best-selling author, and Clinton cabinet member – as he demonstrates how the widening income gap has a devastating impact on the American economy. The film is an intimate portrait of a man whose lifelong goal remains protecting those who are unable to protect themselves.
