I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO

(HIFF 2016 Audience Award Winner, 2016 Oscar® nominee)

March 3, 6:00pm, Guild Hall of East Hampton

I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO connects the past of the Civil Rights movement with the present of #BlackLivesMatter. Using the words of the extraordinary James Baldwin, Raoul Peck has produced a work that challenges the very definition of what America stands for.

One of the best-reviewed films of the year, Peck’s searing examination of race in America is also the highest-grossing indie film of the year to date (Indiewire)! Tickets on sale now.

THE WINTER GUEST

(HIFF 1997)

March 9, 6:00pm, Bay Street Theater, Sag Harbor

Elspeth pays a visit to her daughter Frances, who is still paralyzed with grief following the death of her husband. As the two women engage in the particular pas-de-deux of mothers and daughters, there is sarcasm, honesty, affectionate gestures and exasperated concern.

Alan Rickman‘s auspicious directorial debut stars real-life mother and daughter Phyllida Law and Emma Thompson, echoing the eternal retreat and advance of the ocean tide. 

Tickets on sale now.
