Hamptons International Film Festival's Special Screening
THE FINAL YEAR

Guild Hall
158 Main Street in East Hampton
Directed by Greg Barker (USA, 2017, 89 minutes)
A look at the inner workings of the Obama administration as they prepare to establish a legacy
when leaving power after eight years, THE FINAL YEAR revolves around Obama's foreign policy team:
Secretary of State John Kerry, UN Ambassador Samantha Power, Deputy National Security Adviser and
presidential confidant Ben Rhodes, as well as National Security Adviser Susan Rice and President
Obama himself. Over the course of 2016, they travel the world attempting to solidify and "lock-in"
policies that they believe will define their legacy, promote diplomacy over large-scale military
action, and fundamentally alter how the US government confronts questions of war and peace, as
they prepare to hand over the machinery of American power to a new administration. Please call
631.324.0806 for more information. Tickets are $15 ($12 Members). hamptonsfilmfest.org/

Hamptons International Film Festival's Special Screening
THE DIVINE ORDER

Guild Hall
158 Main Street in East Hampton
Directed by Petra Volpe
In 1971, a quaint Swiss village, seemingly untouched by the cultural and social upheavals of the
1960s, anticipates the vote for women's suffrage. Following her exposure to a women's rights
demonstration in Zurich, a shy and well-liked housewife becomes the unexpected beacon of her
village's suffragette movement. Featuring a strong ensemble cast, led by the effortless Marie
Leuenberger, THE DIVINE ORDER chronicles the challenges of a determined group of women who cast
off the stubborn ways of the village and fight for independence. Directing with a keen eye for
sincerity and humor, Petra Volpe captures the inspiring journey of harnessing your voice to both
speak truth to power and tell your husband he can do his own laundry. Tickets are $15 ($12 Members).
Please call 631.324.0806 for more information. hamptonsfilmfest.org/

Hamptons International Film Festival Special Screening: THE OTHER SIDE OF HOPE

Bay Street Theatre
Corner of Bay + Main Streets in Sag Harbor
Director: Aki Kaurismaki
Runtime: 98 minutes
This wry, melancholic comedy from Aki Kaurismaki, a clear-eyed response to the current refugee
crisis, follows two people searching for a place to call home. Displaced Syrian Khaled (Sherwan
Haji) lands in Helsinki as a stowaway; meanwhile, middle-aged salesman Wikstrom (Sakari Kuosmanen)
leaves behind his wife and job and buys a conspicuously unpro table seafood restaurant. After
Khaled is denied asylum, he decides not to return to Aleppo - and the paths of the two men cross
fortuitously. As deadpan as the best of the director's work, and with a deep well of empathy for
its down- but-not-out characters (many of them played by members of Kaurismaki's ever-reliable
stock company),The Other Side of Hopeis a bittersweet tale of human kindness in the face of
official indifference. baystreet.org

Saturday, February 10th - 6 pm
Hamptons International Film Festival Special Screening: NOVITIATE

Guild Hall
158 Main Street in East Hampton
Director: Maggie Betts
Runtime: 123 minutes
In her feature debut, writer/director Maggie Betts offers a contemplative, affecting, and
complicated coming-of-age story about Cathleen (Margaret Qualley), a teenage girl who falls
"in love" with God. Set in the 1960s as the Catholic Church is roiled by the reforms of
Vatican II,NOVITIATEfeatures breakout performances by a cast of remarkable young female actors,
grounded by screen veterans Melissa Leo (The Fighter, Frozen River) and Julianne Nicholson
(August: Osage County, Black Mass). Entering a convent under the harsh tutelage of a Reverend
Mother (played to the hilt by Leo), Cathleen and her fellow hopefuls find an institution in
turmoil, where they're forced to reckon with issues of faith, passion, and devotion within,
and beyond, the church. guildhall.org

BroadwayHD presents a Screening of Present Laughter by Noel Coward
Starring Kevin Kline

Guild Hall
158 Main Street in East Hampton
At the centre of his own universe sits matinee idol Garry Essendine: suave, hedonistic and
too old, says his wife, to be having numerous affairs. His line in harmless, infatuated
debutantes is largely tolerated but playing closer to home is not. Just before he escapes
on tour to Africa the full extent of his misdemeanours is discovered. And all hell breaks
loose. Noel Coward's Present Laughter premiered in the early years of the Second World War
just as such privileged lives were threatened with fundamental social change. $18 ($16 Members).

Q + A with HIFF Board Co-Chair Alec Baldwin + Artistic Director David Nugent

Guild Hall
158 Main Street in East Hampton
Director: Alfred Hitchock
Runtime: 101 minutes
Based on the 1950 novel of the same name by Patricia Highsmith (CAROL, THE TALENTED MR RIPLEY),
Alfred Hitchcock's psychological thriller shows why he was the master of the genre. When two
strangers meet on a train complaining of people in their life they'd like to get "rid of", they
hatch the idea to take care of each other's problems. In one of his final roles, and shortly after
being released from a psychiatric hospital, Robert Walker plays the psychopath who convinces the
doe-eyed Farley Granger (ROPE) of how fool proof his plan is. Following the screening of the film
will be a discussion with Hamptons International Film Festival Board co-chair Alec Baldwin and
Artistic Director David Nugent. guildhall.org
