HIFF & GH present NOW SHOWING a screening of FACES PLACES Directed by Agnes Varda and JR.  Agnes Varda, 89-years-old and one of the leading figures of the French New Wave, teams up with acclaimed 33-year-old French photographer and muralist JR to make this enchanting documentary/road movie. Kindred spirits, they travel around the villages of France in JR’s photo truck meeting locals, learning their stories, and producing epic-size portraits of them. The photos are prominently displayed on houses, barns, storefronts, and trains, revealing the humanity of both their subjects and viewers. FACES PLACES documents these heartwarming encounters.

HIFF & GH present NOW SHOWING, a screening of THE SQUARE, directed by Ruben Östlund. A precisely observed, thoroughly modern comedy of manners, Ruben Östlund’s Palme d’Or–winner revolves around Christian (Claes Bang), a well-heeled contemporary art curator at a Stockholm museum. While preparing his new exhibit—a four-by-four-meter zone designated as a “sanctuary of trust and caring”—Christian falls prey to a pickpocketing scam, which triggers an overzealous response, and then a crisis of conscience. Featuring several instant-classic scenes and a vivid supporting cast (Elisabeth Moss, Dominic West, and noted motion-capture actor Terry Notary), THE SQUARE is the most ambitious film yet by one of contemporary cinema’s most incisive social satirists and delivers an abundance of laughs. Tickets $15 / $12 General Admission for Guild Hall and HIFF Members .Tickets at GuildHall.org; Box Office 2 hours prior to screening 631.324.4050; GH Reception during Museum Hours:  Fri, Sat and Mon 11am to 5pm and Sun 12pm to 5pm. The John Drew Theater in the Dina Merrill Pavilion at Guild Hall, 158 Main Street, East Hampton, New York 11937, 631.324.0806; GuildHall.org

Guild Hall presents a screening of THE OPERA HOUSE

A new film by multiple Emmy Award–winning documentary filmmaker Susan Froemke, that surveys a remarkable period of the Metropolitan Opera’s rich history and a time of great change for New York. Drawing on rarely seen archival footage, stills, and recent interviews, the film chronicles the creation of the Met’s storied home of the last 50 years, against the backdrop of the artists, architects, and politicians who shaped the cultural life of New York City in the ’50s and ’60s. Amongst the notable figures in the film are famed soprano Leontyne Price, who opened the new Met in 1966 in Samuel Barber’s “Anthony and Cleopatra” Rudolf Bing, the Met’s imperious General Manager, who engineered the move from the old house to the new one; Robert Moses, the unstoppable city planner who bulldozed an entire neighborhood to make room for Lincoln Center; and Wallace Harrison, whose quest for architectural glory was never fully realized. Running time 108 minutes.

General Admission: $18 ($16 Members) Tickets at GuildHall.org; Box Office 2 hours prior to screening 631.324.4050; GH Reception during Museum Hours:  Fri, Sat and Mon 11am to 5pm and Sun 12pm to 5pm.  The John Drew Theater in the Dina Merrill Pavilion at Guild Hall, 158 Main Street, East Hampton, New York 11937, 631.324.0806; GuildHall.org

Guild Hall presents National Theatre Live Screening: YOUNG MARX by Richard Bean and Clive Coleman

Rory Kinnear is Marx and Oliver Chris is Engels in this new comedy written by Richard Bean and Clive Coleman. Broadcast live from The Bridge Theatre in London, the production  is directed by Nicholas Hytner and reunites the creative team behind Broadway and West End hit comedy “One Man, Two Guvnors.”  It is 1850, and Europe’s most feared terrorist is hiding in Soho. Creditors, spies, rival revolutionary factions, and prospective seducers of his beautiful wife all circle like vultures. His writing is blocked, his marriage is dying, and his friend, Engels, despairs over his wasted genius, but there’s still no one in the capital who can show you a better night “on the piss” than Karl Heinrich Marx. General Admission: $18 ($16 Members) 

Tickets at GuildHall.org; Box Office 2 hours prior to screening 631.324.4050; GH Reception during Museum Hours:  Fri, Sat and Mon 11am to 5pm and Sun 12pm to 5pm.  The John Drew Theater in the Dina Merrill Pavilion at Guild Hall, 158 Main Street, East Hampton, New York 11937, 631.324.0806; GuildHall.org
