The 2021 Tribeca Film Festival runs from June 9 through 20, and not only is the prominent movie celebration playing in New York City, but the films can be streamed anywhere in the U.S. through Tribeca at Home.
One film, in particular, has a prominent Phoenix, Ariz. connection. Phoenix Suns’ All-Star point guard Chris Paul – along with pop superstar Billie Eilish – executive produced “They’re Trying to Kill Us”, directed by John Lewis and Keegan Kuhn.
This important and timely documentary tries “to find answers to why Americans of Color suffer from disproportionately higher rates of chronic disease than their European American counterparts, while examining the intersections of food, disease, race, poverty, institutional racism and government corruption.”
The film is available to stream on June 19 at 8pm, and the details are located on this link.
AHFW is attending Tribeca at Home and streaming this film, because of the topical and alarming subject, but also to support Chris Paul. Our critic lives in Phoenix and is a Suns fan!
