ANOTHER PERIOD

  • Section: Tribeca TV
  • Release Year: 2017
  • Runtime: 28 minutes
  • Directed By: Jeremy Koner
  • Country: USA
Another Period tells the incredible story of the Bellacourt sisters, Lillian and Beatrice (played by Leggero and Lindhome). Defined by their family’s wealth, they care only about becoming super famous — which is a lot harder in 1902. The show follows the insanely decadent and outrageous life of the Bellacourt coterie. Before others claimed their fame, they were the one American family who epitomized all that was spoiled, shameless and stupid. The Bellacourts have more servants than relatives and days filled with money, sex, drugs…and more money.

After the episode: A conversation with creators, writers, and stars Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome, and cast members Paget Brewster and Brett Gelman. Moderated by Hollywood Editor for New York Magazine and Vulture, Stacey Wilson Hunt. | Read More

  • Country: USA
Known for her unmatched beauty, Hedy Lamarr’s fans never knew she also possessed a beautiful mind. Immigrating to Hollywood in the late 1930s, Lamarr acted by day and sketched inventions by night, even devising a “secret communication system” for the Allies to beat the Nazis. Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story reveals how Lamarr gave her patent away to the Navy, receiving no credit for her engineering innovations, even as she was immortalized as a legend of the silver screen. Executive produced by Susan Sarandon. | Read More

  • Runtime: 120 minutes
  • Directed By: Michael Moore
  • Country: USA
In the age of Donald Trump and the "alt-right," and with mass shootings now a regular occurrence in the U.S., there's no better time to revisit Michael Moore's Academy Award®-Winning documentary, Bowling For Columbine.

After the Movie: On the 15th anniversary of the documentary, and on the exact day of the Columbine massacre 18 years ago, a conversation with director Michael Moore and D.A. Pennebaker on the timeliness of the film today. | Read More
