Nas documentary to open Tribeca Film Festival

2014-02-20 18:00
New York — The Tribeca Film Festival will again kick things off with music, opening its 13th annual edition with a documentary on Nas and a performance by the rapper.

The New York festival announced Wednesday that it will open April 16 with Time Is Illmatic, a documentary on Nas' 1994 debut album Illmatic. Following the film premiere, Nas will perform the album in full.

Tribeca has in recent years increasingly turned to music documentaries to begin its film festival.

Last year's festival started with the Brooklyn indie band the National and the documentary Mistaken for Strangers. In 2011, Cameron Crowe's Elton John and Leon Russell documentary, The Union, was followed by a set by John.

The festival runs from 16 April to 27 April.
