Special Events


The Festival is proud to present three Special Events, including a restored print of David Lean’s Russian Revolution epic on its 45th anniversary and two work-in-progress screenings that provide a first look at exciting new films—one a revealing documentary on former Governor Eliot Spitzer, and the other a first-person account of a Marine veteran’s return to Iraq.


Doctor Zhivago 

Doctor Zhivago
Directed by David Lean, written by Robert Bolt
(USA, UK, 1965)

David Lean’s romantic Russian Revolution epic, adapted from Boris Pasternak’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, captured five Academy Awards® (including Best Adapted Screenplay) and five additional nominations after its 1965 release. In honor of its 45th anniversary, we welcome a magnificent state-of-the-art restoration of Doctor Zhivago, shown theatrically for the first time at Tribeca and available from Warner Home Video on Blu-ray disc May 4. Omar Sharif, Julie Christie, Geraldine Chaplin, Rod Steiger, Alec Guinness and Tom Courtenay star. In English, Russian with English subtitles.

Untitled Eliot Spitzer Film

Untitled Eliot Spitzer Film
Directed by Alex Gibney
(USA) – Work in Progress screening

Academy Award® winner Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side, TFF ’07) takes an in-depth look at New York governor and ‘Sheriff of Wall Street’ Eliot Spitzer, who many believed was on his way to becoming president. Then, shockingly, Spitzer's meteoric rise turned into a precipitous fall when he was caught seeing prostitutes. And as the Sheriff fell, so did the financial markets. With unique access to friends and enemies of the ex-governor, this documentary explores the hidden contours of this tale of hubris, sex, and power.

Western Front
The Western Front
Directed and written by Zachary Iscol
(USA) – Work in Progress screening

In 2004, writer/director Zachary Iscol fought as a US Marine in Al Anbar, Iraq’s most violent province. Five years later, Anbar has been transformed into one of the safest, but not because the insurgency was defeated. When Zach returns, he begins to confront the awful dilemmas he faced fighting an enemy that hid among civilians. Profoundly honest, this documentary explores these dilemmas from all sides to reveal a simple but surprising truth about the nature of war and peace.
