The big news this year is that Tribeca will feature the debut of 11 female directors from the New York area. Among them are Erin Lee Carr, whose film “Thought Crimes” examines the story of the alleged “cannibal cop” Gilberto Valle. Natallia Leite will present “Bare,” which takes a look at the story of a waitress who falls in love with and older female customer in what appears to be an almost mystical, drug-filled love affair.
