Tina Fey put the life of Gilda Radner into personal perspective when introducing the documentary about the Saturday Night Live legend, Love, Gilda.
“Gilda was our equivalent of Michelle Obama,” Fey explained to the packed crowd inside New York’s Beacon Theater who came out for the CNN film’s premiere, effectively kicking off the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival on Wednesday night. “[Love, Gilda] feels like a miracle to me: It felt like I was getting time to spend with someone that I never knew, that I very much would have wanted to have spent time with.”
Fey choked up twice during her speech about the doc from first-time filmmaker Lisa D’Apolito; first when talking about the indelible mark Radner made on herself and the female comedians she came up with at SNL‘s famed Studio 8H, and a second time when remarking about how everyone knows how Radner’s story ends.
While it may seem like six years, it’s been barely six months since the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment story broke last October and women’s scandalous underrepresentation in the film industry came to the forefront.
This year, however, the 12-day festival, April 18-29, has come very close, no doubt influenced by the #metoo and #timesup movements. Fully 46 per cent of Tribeca’s feature film line-up are by women directors with five each in the U.S. Narrative and Documentary competitions.
