The day will explore how we got to this critical point in women's right, the pioneers who came before to make this work possible, and what’s next for TIME’S UP and beyond.
In addition, the Immersive program is adding the world premiere of Jack: Part One. From the Emmy Award-winning creators of Invasion!, Asteroids! and Rainbow Crow comes Baobab Studios’ latest visionary VR animation that lets viewers experience the world of Jack from the classic fairytale Jack and the Beanstalk.
The Tribeca TV program is also expanding with the world premiere of Enhanced, an ESPN docuseries from executive producers Alex Gibney and Brad Hebert, exploring the frontiers of sports training, technology and recovery, as boundary-pushing innovations propel human athletic achievement to its limits.
