NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital documentary selected for Tribeca Festival


A documentary film sponsored by NYU Langone Orthopedics in New York City will screen at the 23rd Tribeca Festival as an official selection of the 2024 Tribeca X Award Competition.

The documentary, called "On the Shoulders of Giants: The History of NYU Langone Orthopedics" goes through NYU's orthopedic history from its roots in the 1850s to its position in the community today, according to a May 16 news release shared with Becker's.

"It has been a privilege to work on the legacy of the NYU Langone Orthopedics," filmmaker Peter Sanders said in the release. "The nearly forty interviews that were conducted with specialists in the various subspecialties have created a rich tapestry of ideas and discussions of procedures in a wide range of areas of expertise. The film is both an oral history of the department and its hospitals and its institutional predecessors and a document that preserves the contributions of clinicians and scientists."

NYU Langone Orthopedics plans to host a private viewing of the film June 12.
