Robert DeNiro and Jane Rosenthal, co-founders of the Tribeca Film Festival, also discuss other aspects of the event.
Tribeca has been an event for 15 years. DeNiro does have an autistic child, as you may know.

Dr. Wakefield himself, as the NY Times article notes, had trial lawyers pay for some of his research.
What say you?
