The Tribeca Festival 2024 Premiere of "Following Harry" - A Powerful Catalyst for Change


The Tribeca Festival 2024 premiere of the film “Following Harry” begins with Harry Belafonte at the age of 84, embarking on a deeply personal journey, disrupting injustice over the next ten years by passionately encouraging a diverse group of entertainers and activists to overcome soaring national unrest and anger, by believing that love has the power to redirect oppression into oblivion. The story unfolds like a poem punctuated by a collection of provocative and deeply personal ruminations from Belafonte. Featuring conversations with Aloe Blacc, Aja Monet, Angela Davis, Jesse Williams, Phillip Agnew, Jamie Foxx, Carmen Perez, Matt Post, Chuck D, Talib Kweli, Rosario Dawson among others, the film encourages today’s youth to use their strength to meet complex social issues with love, compassion, and a fierce determination to stand for justice. It’s our turn to carry this forward.
