Tribeca Trailers: From Salt of This Sea to Yodok Stories

In the final installment of our Tribeca-associated trailers, there is the requisite trip to the Holy Land, a scorching concert featuring James Brown and one funky moustache, a masterpiece from Japan, a profile of a possibly mad evolutionary thinker, tragedy Vegas style, and a musical for North Korean concentration camps victims.
