    Meet the 2011 Tribeca Filmmakers | "Treatment" Directors Steven Schardt and Sean Nelson

    Leonard and Nelson have been friends for ages. Leonard is the charismatic, underachieving, but obsessive screenwriter looking for a fast track to success, and Nelson is his self-deprecating and accommodating writing partner who always has a few bucks to spare. As both confront a mid-30s reality check and a pile of unsuccessful screenplays, Leonard convinces Nelson to back his stint at a glitzy LA rehab clinic so he can pitch their new movie deal to mega-star Gregg D. As the half-baked plan twists and turns, and Leonard's ambition and selfishness spin out of control, the writing duo's friendship cries for an overdue dose of reality. [Synopsis ...

    Balthazar is a young African filmmaker on the brink of directing his first project, "The Cycle of the Cockroach," a fictional story about a young woman who survived unspeakable atrocities only to find herself committed to the same mental institution as a man driven insane by the crimes he perpetrated during the war.

    INTERVIEW | Werner Herzog on 3D, “The Simpsons,” and Nicolas Cage

    An essential contributor to the wave of New German Cinema produced in the seventies and eighties, Werner Herzog solidified his reputation as a legendary filmmaker long ago. Since the release of “Grizzly Man” in 2005, Herzog’s popularity has become more prevalent than ever before. Herzog himself, however, hasn’t vanished into his persona at the expense of staying busy. After 2009’s double-header of narratives, “Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans” and “My Son, My Son, What Ye Done,” Herzog returned to the non-fiction realm with “Cave of Forgotten Dreams,” his first production shot with 3D cameras. It opens in New York, Los Angeles and Chi...
