Elsa Majimbo documentary to premiere at Tribeca Festival

Instagram sensation Elsa Majimbo is set to appear in her first film.

The short documentary titled Elsa was unveiled on Wednesday at the Tribeca Festival of its 2022 lineup of 109 feature films from 40 countries and 88 world premieres.

The internet’s beloved truth-teller exposes the harsh reality behind being unashamedly herself.

Still, she wouldn’t have it any other way. Directed and produced by Julia Jansch, the film was written by Elsa Majimbo.

The film is featured under the category called Compass which features short documentaries about navigating life. It gives viewers a glimpse into her rise to fame and the harsh realities of unashamedly being herself.

Elsa will screen alongside other shorts in that category including The Dreamlife of Georgie Stone, Paint & Pitchfork, Santa Barbara and Walking Two Worlds.

The available dates to screen Elsa with a pass are June 9th and June 16th.

“My first film ever! I’m over the moon to have it premiered at Tribeca Film Festival. Shot in New York and shown in New York,” she tweeted.

The aim of the Tribeca Film Festival, often referred to as TIFF, is to showcase a diverse selection of films, episodic, talks, music, games, art, and immersive programming. Owing to the pandemic, the festival is offering passes for film lovers who would like to watch from home.

The festival will run from June 8 to 19, 2022.
