Tribeca opens with 'Gilda' and De Niro comes out swinging

The actor, who helped start the festival 16 years ago, praised journalists the crowd of journalists at the event and took shots at the commander-in-chief. In a video released before the 2016 presidential election, De Niro called Trump a "pig" and a "bullshit artist", saying he'd like to "punch" the then-White House hopeful "in the face". "We're at a point where the things that are happening in our country are so bad and it comes from Trump", he said.

"America is being run by a mad man", he told the crowd, before comparing the president to "Colonel Sanders" fried chicken". - AFP picFestival co-founders Robert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal spoke before the screening held at Manhattan's Beacon theatre. 'We stand with Time's Up, Never Again and Black Lives Matter and underserved voices'. One film De Niro seems particularly stoked on is Liz Garbus' festival closer The Fourth Estate.

It was the second time in a handful of years that Tribeca turned to its fellow NY institution, "SNL", for opening night. The Jay-Z produced series "Rest in Power: The Travyon Martin Story" documents the 2012 shooting of the 17-year-old in Florida.

Several of the movies that will be featured at this year's festival have a political theme. Rosenthal has credited that percentage in part with the makeup of Tribeca Enterprises, which she said is 80 per cent female.

After Robert De Niro made a surprise appearance on "Saturday Night Live", playing a satirical role of Russian investigation special counsel Robert Mueller, the actor gave an interview during the April 18 edition of "TODAY".

"Look at all the fake news writers here today", De Niro joked at a press luncheon, according to Deadline. "I can personally attest, and I feel comfortable speaking for Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, and Rachel Dratch, when I say that seeing Gilda as a kid, she was lovely and she was so authentically herself and so regular in so many ways", Fey said, referencing her other "SNL" peers.
