Traitors At Tribeca Film Festival

The Tribeca Film Festival kicked off last night and runs through April 27th. Along with the world premiere of the Nas documentary Time Is Illmatic, one of the features we’re most looking forward to is Traitors (2013), which makes its North American premiere at TFF. First time director Sean Gullete's Moroccan coming of age story revolves around Malika, whose life as the leader of a female punk band in Tangiers proves to be too scandalous for her über conservative community. Watch a preview below and head here for more information on tickets and screening times.
