Tribeca 2019 Preview: Across the Competitions
NYC's big indie festival the Tribeca Film Fest kicks off tomorrow. It's another solid lineup of features (plus TV, plus VR, plus talks) and we've been poring over the catalog looking for the special gems. The festival runs three competitions: US Narrative, International Narrative, and Documentary. We've highlighted a few below and we'll be back tomorrow to look at the rest of the program.
The Gasoline Thieves (aka Huachicolero)
Mexican gasoline thieves have been in the news lately for the extremely dangerous lives they live. This serves as the setting for Edgar Nito's feature debut about a boy who turns to the practice to buy a cell phone for the girl he likes. - Ryland Aldrich
