On Friday evening, leading Hollywood special events group A-List Communications kicked off weekend one of the Tribeca Film Festival with an epic Supper Suite soirée. Ahead of the “No Man Of God” world premiere at Pier 76, cast and friends gathered for a chic cocktail party and delicious dinner at newly opened Gerber Group’s restaurant and lounge, Nearly Ninth within the Arlo Midtown.
It was my first time visiting this Arlo and Nearly Ninth and the space and food are incredible. Before guests sat down for a several-course dinner, they enjoyed drinks courtesy of Grey Goose Essences, Billionaires Row champagne, and Peroni Nastro Azzurro from Molson Coors Beverage Company.
We also had a chance to meet the founders of PAC Protocol, which is a premier technology and blockchain partner. The PAC App mobile wallet connects customers with a fast and more cost-effective way to send, save and store digital transactions globally. PAC Protocol provides a more secure way to store your valuable data. Digital data transfer includes everything from cryptocurrency to full Hollywood movie files for transfer of DCP files from filmmaker to filmmaker or distributor to theater.
Stars Elijah Woods and Luke Kirby were in great spirits mingling with guests. Katie Holmes even made a surprise appearance at the dinner. The dinner started with assorted meats and pita bread, veggies, and hummus. Then we had garlic bread, kale salad, potatoes, steak, asparagus, spinach pizza, and vanilla gelato for dessert. Everything was phenomenal.
No Man of God tells the true story of FBI analyst Bill Hagmaier’s (Elijah Wood) interviews with famed serial killer Ted Bundy (Luke Kirby) from 1984-1989 inside Florida State Prison. His goal was to figure out why Bundy murdered more than 20 victims.
Elisa Lleras, is a Production Executive at Spectrevision / Company X, the production company owned by Elijah Wood, Daniel Noah, and Lisa Whalen. She shared, what inspired the project. “Even though the Ted Bundy tapes existed, there wasn’t a narrative film done to it … and we knew that we wanted a woman to tell this story and we wanted a woman director, a woman DP, we wanted women behind the camera, the CEO of Spectrevision is a woman. We wanted women to take charge of this narrative about a man using his power .. It is really fascinating how hard the tapes are for us to even hear, let alone try and recreate. It was really challenging for us to find a way.”
