We all know the iconic Madonna’s blonde ambition world tour and its polemical documentary, 1991’s Truth or Dare. But, who are the back-up dancers that accompanied and supported her and where are they now?
Strike a Pose isn’t about Madonna, it’s about the male dancers Kevin, Oliver, Luis, Carlton, Jose, Gabriel, and Salim; a diverse, impressionable group of young people whose lives were forever changed.
This documentary, from directors Ester Goul and Reijer Zwaan, revi...

ALOFT is a journey through the power of the mind, a journey that forces us to confront the immensity of such concepts as love, order, chaos and faith.
A mother who abandons her child for the common good; a son who abandons himself and his own ability to feel in order to bear the weight of tragedy; and a woman who abandons her life to follow her one obsession of curing herself. Three characters – complicated, human, flawed – reveal themselves to us, reflecting on the di...
Algeria, 1954. While the rebellion rumbles in the valley, two very different men thrown together by a world in turmoil are forced to flee together across the Atlas Mountains. In the midst of an icy winter, Daru, the reclusive teacher, has to escort Mohamed, a villager accused of murder. Pursued by horsemen seeking summary justice and vengeful settlers, the two men decide to confront the unknown. Together they fight to gain their freedom.
Grounded by Mortensen’s fiercely understated ...
1992—the former East German city of Rostock is still coming to terms with the aftermath of the recent fall of the Berlin Wall. Youth unemployment is high, and migrant workers are housed in Soviet-era high-rises on the outskirts of the city. The Roma and a sizeable Vietnamese minority have become targets of the locals’ discontent, which escalates into hostility and violence during the course of one day.
Director Burhan Qurbani plunges us headfirst into this world and we watch e...

A life's work becomes a prison for jazz club owner Stelios when a shady Romanian gangster calls in his debts. This gripping, underworld drama is a parable on the perils of accumulated debt, and a depiction of the descent of a mostly decent man. Director Alexis Alexiou perfectly balances the complex emotions that drive a man to take the most drastic measures available.
Stelios is the owner of a Jazz club in Athens. A few years ago, with the help of his former associate Vassos,...
NEW YORK, NY - APRIL 21: Guests attend the producers reception during the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival at Company 3 on April 21, 2015 in New York City.
There will only be 1.4 million people in the coding, programming, and computing world by the year 2020 and there will be one million unfilled software engineering jobs in the United States alone. Of the 1.4 million, only 29% will be American, and less than 3% will be women. ‘Code’ examines why women are not seeking out opportunities in the computer science fields. Do stereotypes, education, and cultural beliefs play a role in this digital divide?

At the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of overpopulation inquiry Misconception, a cranky viewer took filmmaker Jessica Yu to task on the grounds that her topic is urgent and she "handled it very lightly." One man's criticism is another man's tagline. Why not make a subject as bleak and obstruse as Earth's mounting human throngs entertaining and engaging? Who besides the old scold and his cronies would go see an academic lesson on film...
