THE NEUTRAL GROUND Directed by CJ Hunt Premieres on POV July 5 and at the Tribeca Film Festival

Directed CJ Hunt and Executive Produced by Roy Wood, Jr. The Neutral Ground is an Official Selection of the 2021 Tribeca Film Festival's Juneteenth Celebration and Makes its Broadcast/Streaming Debut on POV July 5, 2021  The Neutral Ground begins in 2015 as Hunt documents a raucous New Orleans City Council meeting about the removal of four Confederate monuments. It quickly becomes apparent just how divided white and Black residents are on the meaning of the city's statues. This tension between what to Hunt seems obvious – that the statues should be removed – and the fervor with which so many people oppose this view opens an opportunity for him to try and understand the mythology of the Confederacy and why Americans are willing to put so much on the line to guard its stone remnants.

BRIAN WILSON: LONG PROMISED ROAD Premieres at Tribeca June 15

When Rolling Stone editor and longtime friend Jason Fine drops by the L.A. home of songwriter, producer and Beach Boys co-founder Brian Wilson, Fine suggests they cruise around the city he knows so well to visit old haunts and give Brian the opportunity to reflect on his life and music. They first head to Paradise Cove - photo session site for the Beach Boys’ first LP - then to Hollywood, Malibu, and the stomping grounds of hometown Hawthorne. Spontaneously “spinning” MP3s of his favorite cuts along the way, Brian delves into his childhood, his contentious relationship with dad Murray, the nine-year “prison sentence” under the “guidance” of Dr. Landy, his struggles with depression and mental illness, his love for brothers Dennis and Carl, and the many recording sessions.

Executive produced by the Duplass Brothers, 7 DAYS will have its World Premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival June 10

 Set up on a pre-arranged date by their old-fashioned Indian parents, Ravi (Karan Soni) and Rita (Geraldine Viswanathan) seemingly have nothing in common, making for an afternoon that, while pleasant enough, couldn’t be any more awkward. He’s conservative and clearly nervous, while she’s doing her best to politely keep on smiling. But then the unthinkable happens: As the COVID outbreak intensifies, the shelter-in-place mandate is issued, forcing Ravi to spend the night at Rita’s place. Before long, he sees that she’s not the straightlaced girl she initially pretended to be—for starters, she’s quick to pound a beer for breakfast. As their time stuck together stretches towards a full week, though, Ravi and Rita develop an unlikely bond, and in the face of a heartbreaking turn of events, that bond grows into something stronger. 7 Days is a delightful rom-com that doubles as a showcase for its two stars, Soni and Viswanathan, both of whom carry this two-hander with natural charm and easygo
