Published April 24, 2018 3:30PM (EDT)


The Tribeca Film Festival has arrived in New York this week and several actors and filmmakers are stopping by SalonTV with their hottest new projects. Molly Ringwald will appear on “Salon Talks” with her latest film “All These Small Moments,” in which she plays a mother of two teenage boys and is dealing with a crumbling marriage. Ralph Macchio is back in the character of “karate kid” Daniel LaRusso and up against his high school adversary, Johnny Lawrence, in the new YouTube Red Original Series “Cobra Kai.” Macchio will talk to Salon revisiting karate kid 30 years later.

Director Dawn Porter, whose 2016 documentary film “Trapped” about doctors who perform abortions won acclaim and a special jury social impact prize at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, will share her latest project “Bobby Kennedy for President.” The four-part Netflix original series, which launches globally on April 27, features rare and never-before-seen archival footage of Bobby Kennedy and new interviews with those who knew RFK well.

We'll spotlight another inspiring culture icon who left too soon, comedian Gilda Radner. Lisa D'Apolito, director of "Love, Gilda," a new documentary from CNN Films about the comedic trailblazer will present her film, which examines Radner’s life through journal entries, never-before-heard audio recordings and interviews with Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Lorne Michaels and Melissa McCarthy.

And as Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” debuts its second season this week, Amanda Brugel, who plays Rita in the drama alongside Elisabeth Moss, Joseph Fiennes, Yvonne Strahovski and Alexis Bledel, will visit “Salon Talks.”

Plus, we’ll talk politics with Stacey Abrams, who is running for governor of Georgia. If she wins, she would make history as the country’s first black woman governor. Her new book, “Minority Leader: How to Lead from the Outside and Make Real Change,” takes on how she rose from humble roots to leadership.
