Recently acquired by Tribeca FilmBooker's Place: A Mississippi Story - described as a intensely personal film about children struggling to understand their parents is also a heartbreaking portrait of the legacy of intolerance - will premiere at the upcoming Tribeca Film Festival this month in the Spotlight section.

A summary of the story reads...

While filming a documentary on racism in Mississippi in 1965, Frank De Felitta forever changed the life of an African American waiter and his family. More than 40 years later, Frank's son Raymond (director of City Island) returns to the site of his father's film to examine the repercussions of their fateful encounter.

Tribeca Film acquired North American rights to the feature documentary, with plans to first release it simultaneously in theaters and digital VOD services such as iTunes, Amazon Watch Instantly, Vudu and Samsung Media Hub, on April 25 (theaters) and April 26 (VOD).

But if you're in NYC, catch it first at the 2012 installment of the Tribeca Film Festival, which runs from Apirl 18 - 29.

Pre-festival press screenings are underway, and I hope to see it before then, which will be followed by my review.

You saw the first official poster last week; now S&A has been given an exclusive first look at the film's official trailer which follows below:
