Art, war at Tribeca

'Land of the Blind' preems at fest

Ralph Fiennes, Donald Sutherland and Lara Flynn Boyle hit the red carpet for a Tribeca preem of their pic “Land of the Blind” Monday night at Loews Lincoln Square Theater.

“Politics should interest everyone,” Fiennes said on his night off from Broadway’s “Faith Healer.” “The big catalyst for me was seeing the U.K. go to war over Iraq, and the prime minister standing up and persuading the people that we were at risk from weapons of mass destruction when in fact there weren’t any. That’s the first thing that made me say to myself, ‘Wake up!’ ”

Further downtown, Matt Tauber‘s “The Architect” made its world preem, bringing the tyro helmer back to the hood a year after a pic he produced played here.

Pics’ stars Anthony LaPaglia and Isabella Rossellini mingled afterwards at eatery Sosa Borella.

Also around the fest, IFC Films threw a Lower East Side bash for its punk rock pic “Brothers of the Head.”

A mix of Gotham’s indie elite, including IFC topper Jonathan Sehring, spilled out of the hot-rod hideaway Motor City Bar onto the street to schmooze with helmers Keith Fulton and Louis Pepe.

Sony Pictures Classics chose an intimate, swanky soiree to celebrate its Sydney Pollack-helmed docu “Sketches of Frank Gehry” at the MGM screening room.
