CAMERON CROWE's new documentary, chronicling the musical collaboration between ELTON JOHN and LEON RUSSELL during the recording of "The Union," will open this year’s TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL in NEW YORK on APRIL 20th.
Furthermore, with this year being the 10th edition of the Festival, the opening night will be a free, outdoor screening. JOHN will also be performing at the event.
"As a longtime fan of both artists, it was a pleasure to spend a year filming their collaboration," said CROWE. "We can't wait to show it to one of the greatest audiences in the world, the TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL."
