Guild Hall and the Hamptons International Film Festival present

HIFF 25th Anniversary Screening: I Am Not Your Negro

In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, Remember This House. The book was to be a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and successive assassinations of three of his close friends—Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr.At the time of Baldwin’s death in 1987, he left behind only thirty completed pages of his manuscript. Now, master filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished. The result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America, using Baldwin’s original words and flood of rich archival material. I Am Not Your Negro is a journey into black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter. It is a film that questions black representation in Hollywood and beyond. And, ultimately, by confronting the deeper connections between the lives and assassination of these three leaders, Baldwin and Peck have produced a work that challenges the very definition of what America stands for.

National Theatre Live Screening: AMADEUS

Music. Power. Jealousy. Lucian Msamati (Luther, Game of Thrones, NT Live: The Comedy of Errors) plays Salieri in Peter Shaffer’s iconic play, broadcast live from the National Theatre, and with live orchestral accompaniment by Southbank Sinfonia. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a rowdy young prodigy, arrives in Vienna, the music capital of the world – and he’s determined to make a splash. Awestruck by his genius, court composer Antonio Salieri has the power to promote Mozart’s talent or destroy his name. Seized by obsessive jealousy he begins a war with Mozart, with music, and ultimately, with God. After winning multiple Olivier and Tony Awards when it had its premiere at the National Theatre in 1979, Amadeus was adapted into an Academy Award-winning film.

JDT Lab: VENUS IN FUR by David Ives

Starring Tina Jones and Tristan Vaughan

In David Ives’s seductive, darkly funny Venus in Fur script, Thomas, a playwright/director, has written an adaptation of Leopold von Sacher-Masoch’s classic erotic novel Venus in Fur about the obsessive relationship of a man and the mistress to whom he becomes enslaved. At the end of a long day in which the actresses Thomas auditions fail to impress him, in walks Vanda, very late and seemingly clueless, but she convinces him to give her a chance. As they perform scenes from Thomas’ play, the lines between writer, actor, director, and character begin to blur. An unsettling drama, a playful comedy Venus in Fur is also an exploration of gender roles, sexuality and power in which desire twists and turns in on itself.
