THE BOOKSELLERS

Saturday, February 22nd

TICKETS | $15 ($13 Members)

DIRECTED BY |  D.W. Young

Antiquarian booksellers are part scholar, part detective and part businessperson, and their personalities and knowledge are as broad as the material they handle. They also play an underappreciated yet essential role in preserving history. THE BOOKSELLERS takes viewers inside their small but fascinating world, populated by an assortment of obsessives, intellects, eccentrics and dreamers.

Executive produced by Parker Posey, the film features interviews with some of the most important dealers in the business, as well as prominent collectors, auctioneers, and writers such as Fran Lebowitz, Susan Orlean, Kevin Young and Gay Talese.

YOUNG AHMED

Saturday, February 29th

LOCATION | Guild Hall, 158 Main St, East Hampton, NY 11937

DATE | Saturday, February 29 @ 6:00 pm

TICKETS | $15 ($13 Members)

DIRECTED BY | Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne

The Dardenne Brothers won this year’s Best Director award at the Cannes Film Festival for this brave new work, another intimate portrayal-in-furious-motion of a protagonist in crisis. The filmmakers’ radical empathy alights on a Muslim teenager (extraordinary first-time actor Idir Ben Addi) in a small Belgian town who has been radicalized by his Imam despite the desperate protestations of his single mother (Claire Bodson), and who winds up hatching a murderous plot targeting his beloved teacher (Myriem Akheddiou). Taking a serious view of a difficult issue—the effect of fanaticism on the body and soul—the Dardennes here remind viewers why they continue to be at the center of 21st-century cinema. – New York Film Festival

THAW FEST SCREENING: SILKWOOD

Saturday, March 7th

*Please note this screening will be followed by a conversation with Alec Baldwin

LOCATION | Guild Hall, 158 Main St, East Hampton, NY 11937

DATE | Saturday, March 7 @ 7:00 pm

TICKETS | $25 ($20 Members)

DIRECTED BY | Mike Nichols

In 1983, celebrated director Mike Nichols put his successful theater career on hold to tell the story of chemical technician and union labor activist Karen Silkwood. From a script by Alice Arlen, and a first time screenwriter named Nora Ephron, Nichols assembled an all star cast featuring Meryl Streep, Kurt Russell and Cher who gave one of her first dramatic performances on screen. The film would go on to be nominated for five Academy Awards, and its exploration of the importance of both whistleblowers and corporate accountability seems as relevant today as it did almost 40 years ago. A conversation about the film’s importance between HIFF Board chair Alec Baldwin and Artistic Director David Nugent will follow the screening.
