2015 Tribeca Film Festival Special Screenings Include Docs on Mary J. Blige And Misty Copeland

Mary J. Blige, DJ Z-Trip and dancers Erica Lall and Naazir Muhammad will perform following films in this year’s Special Screenings section.

For the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival, presented by AT&T, our Special Screenings program pairs exciting film experiences with unique live performances. One event movie and music lovers will undoubtedly be talking about is Mary J. Blige—The London Sessions, a new documentary that shows the singer’s creative process as she writes, records, and curates one of her most experimental albums to date. After the world premiere at the Beacon Theater, Blige will take the stage in front of our TFF audience, which will no doubt prove to be unforgettable.

Filmmaker Nelson George will debut A Ballerina’s Tale, his documentary on trailblazing dancer Misty Copeland, which will be followed by a conversation with Copeland and a special performance by her protégées. DJ Z-Trip will perform a new live film score to Harold Lloyd’s silent classic Speedy and the comedy crew from Rifftrax will provide laughs with a live-commentary on The Room. Additionally, TFF alumni Alma Har’el and Patrick Creadon will also screen Work In Progress cuts of their latest documentaries: LoveTrue and All Work, All Play. New York audiences just got 6 more reasons to get excited about this year’s Festival.
