TANISHA LAVERNE GRANT INTERVIEWS KOBE BRYANT AT THE 16TH ANNUAL TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL (967 hits)

ENTERTAINMENT CORRESPONDENT TANISHA LAVERNE GRANT was on the scene Sunday night for the Tribeca Talks series which featured newly retired basketball great Kobe Bryant in CONVERSATION with Glene Keane and Michael Strahan.

Basketball great Kobe Bryant collaborated with visionary animator Glen Keane on an animated short film that explores what it is like to say goodbye to something you love. In an onstage conversation led by Hall of Famer, NFL analyst on Fox and co-host of Good Morning America, Michael Strahan, Bryant and Keane focus on what story means to them and what it is like to truly step out of your own lane. Bryant and Keane’s conversation with Michael Strahan followed a screening of Dear Basketball (directed by Bradford Young), Kobe Bryant's inspiring poem, stunningly drawn to life by veteran animation director Glen Keane and set to the music of legendary composer John Williams.
