Tribeca Sets Conversations With Martin Scorsese, Robert De Niro, Steven Spielberg and More

The 2024 Tribeca Festival has revealed its lineup of talks and reunions with Martin Scorsese, Robert De Niro, Judd Apatow, Kieran Culkin and more.

Steven Spielberg made his feature film directorial debut in 1974 with The Sugarland Express, which he also co-wrote, and follows a woman (Goldie Hawn) and her husband (William Atherton) as they take a police officer (Michael Sacks) hostage and flee across Texas while they try to get to their child before he is placed in foster care. While leaving New York’s Plaza Hotel, advertising executive Roger Thornhill (Grant) has the misfortune of standing just as the name “George Kaplan” is paged–starting a lethal case of mistaken identity and a nonstop game of cat and mouse as he is pursued across North America by espionage agents trying to kill him–and by police who suspect him of murder. A masterclass in subversion, Tod Browning’s 1927 silent film classic shocks and awes through Lon Chaney’s towering performance as carnival knife thrower “Alonzo the Armless.” It’s also an early watershed moment for disability representation in horror cinema, its power remaining potent nearly 100 years later.
