The world premiere of Steven Sebring’s feature-length documentary Horses: Patti Smith and her Band has been added to the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival lineup.
Executive produced by Jimmy Iovine, the film (pictured) captures the final performance of Patti Smith’s seminal debut album Horses, performed in full at the Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles, during the 40th anniversary of the Horses album tour.
The film will also feature backstage footage of Smith and her band, including guitarists Lenny Kaye and Jack Petruzzelli, drummer Jay Dee Daugherty, bassist Tony Shanahan, as they’re joined by guitarist Jackson Smith and bassist Flea of Red Hot Chili Peppers fame.
Following the special screening at the Beacon Theatre on April 23 at 7 p.m. ET, Smith and her band will perform the title track of Horses along with some of their signature songs.
Horses: Patti Smith and her Band will be released exclusively on Apple Music.
Directed by Chai Vasarhelyi, Jesse Sweet Paul Taublieb and Allison Layman, the series will explore the frontiers of sports training, technology and recovery as athletes continue to push the limits.
Enhanced world premieres on April 26 at 6 p.m. ET at New York’s Cinépolis Chelsea.
Also, Tribeca has teamed with the Time’s Up organization for its inaugural New York event on April 28 at 11 a.m. ET at the Tribeca Festival Hub.
