    Last night, Tribeca Film and founding sponsor American Express continued the festival with the Cinema Society screening of The Bang Bang Club. Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal, Zoe Kazan, Anna Kendrick, Aleksa Palladino, Chris Coffey, Christopher McDonald, Pablo Schreiber, Doutzen Kroes, Jack Osbourne, Karolina Kurkova, Nicole Miller and more came out to BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center to enjoy the film. Take a look and find out more!

    The film, directed by Steven Silver, is set during the final years of South African apartheid. It chronicles the life-changing journey of photojournalist Greg Marinovich and the Bang Bang Club. The film starred Ryan Phillipe as Greg Marinovich, Taylor Kitsch (of NBC’S Friday Night Lights) and Malin Akerman.

    TFF co-founder Jane Rosenthal introduced the film referencing the recent tragic death of award-winning photographer, Tim Hetherington who was killed in the Libya conflict. Due to the immense importance of photojournalism, a film like The Bang Bang Club is very crucial and a tribute to the talented men and women who risk their lives to capture conflicting and life-threatening events through the click of a lens.
