NEW YORK (AP) — A documentary on the Metropolitan Museum of Art will open the 15th Tribeca Film Festival.
The festival announced Monday that this year’s festival will begin on April 13 with the premiere of Andrew Rossi’s “The First Monday in May.” Rossi previously documented another New York institution in “Page One: Inside the New York Times.”
“The First Monday in May” focuses on the MET’s popular costume exhibition on Chinese-inspired Western fashions, “China: Through the Looking Glass.”
Tribeca has made documentaries a regular festival opener, particularly those that celebrate New York and culture. Last year the festival was kicked off with a documentary about “Saturday Night Live.”
