Tribeca Film Festival Announces 2016 Slate, Including High-Rise and Equals

High-Rise.

If you’ve ever been to New York City’s Tribeca neighborhood, you’ll know that it is filled with incredibly expensive real estate. So it’s fitting, then, that this year’s slate* of the Tribeca Film Festival includes two of the most anticipated dystopian films of the year: Drake Doremus’s Equals, which stars Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult as lovers in a world where all human emotion has been banned; and Ben Wheatley’s High-Rise, the Tom Hiddleston–starring J.G. Ballard adaptation about a super-tall skyscraper whose floors are organized by social class. It’s a metaphor! Read the full slate, which also includes films by Demetri Martin and Gael García Bernal, here.

* This post originally stated that both Equals and High-Rise were among the films competing at Tribeca. Both films are playing in the non-competition Viewpoints category.
