Blackfeet Boxing: Not Invisible
Tribeca Films is the latest organization to take their films to the drive-in. The Tribeca Drive-In features screenings at Orchard Beach, NY, Nickerson Beach, NY, the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, The AT&T Stadium in Arlington, and The Hard Rock Stadium in MIami. As part of the many films being screened is two documentaries from ESPN:
- 30 for 30’s Be Water
July 18 at AT&T Stadium (TX) & Nickerson Beach (NY)
The film explores the fascinating story of kung-fu legend and movie star Bruce Lee and his rise to fame after being rejected by Hollywood in 1971. After this crushing blow, Lee returned to his parents’ homeland of Hong Kong to complete four iconic films. Exploring questions of identity and representation through rare archival footage, interviews with loved ones, and Bruce’s own writings, Be Water captures Lee’s charisma, passion, philosophy, and the eternal beauty and wonder of his art.

Multiple dates & locations
This short film exposes the crisis of missing and murdered Indigenous Women and takes you inside a gym formed on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation in Montana that teaches young girls how to defend themselves in response to violence. It is a film about fighting—for respect, identity and acknowledgment. There are no scorecards or knockouts on the Reservation; the prize at the Blackfeet Nation Boxing Club is far more vital: survival.
Other films being screened at Tribeca’s Drive-Ins include:
- Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure
- Girls Trip
- John Wick
- Casino Royale
- Inside Man
- The Bodyguard
- Crazy Rich Asians
And many more.
