James Franco's GENERAL HOSPITAL-Themed 'Francophrenia' Leads Tribeca Film Festival Lineup

The 2012 Tribeca Film Festival has, on Tuesday, March 6, announced its lineup of qualified films that will compete in world narrative and documentary sections. The fest also revealed selections for its out of competition viewpoint movies including a film made by James Franco while shooting GENERAL HOSPITAL is included.

Francophrenia (or: Don’t Kill Me, I Know Where the Baby Is)
Directed by Ian Olds and James Franco, written by Ian Olds and Paul Felten
(USA)—North American Premiere, Narrative

James Franco stunned the film world when he committed to a regular gig on GENERAL HOSPITAL, but the Oscar®-nominated actor had a clever trick up his sleeve. While shooting a key GH episode, Franco brought along a film crew. TFF award winner Ian Olds (Fixer, 2009) then repurposed Franco’s behind-the-scenes footage into an experimental psychological thriller set amid the spectacle of a celebrity’s escalating paranoia, creating a mind-bending exploration of identity.

The film had its world premiere at this year's Rotterdam International Film Festival in late January.
