Film Screening – The Life and Times of Hank Greenberg

Join the East Hampton Library and the Hamptons International Film Festival for a screening of the film, The Life and Times of Hank Greenberg, directed by Aviva Kempner.
More than ten years in the making, Aviva Kempner’s lively and nostalgic documentary about baseball legend Hank Greenberg is as timely as a Mark McGwire or Sammy Sosa home run. Almost eighty years ago, as Hitler invaded Europe, Hank  Greenberg, the strapping Detroit Tigers first baseman, challenged Babe Ruth’s record by by hitting 58 home runs in a season.  “I came to feel that if I, as a Jew, hit a home run, I was hitting against Hitler,” wrote Greenberg, who succeeded despite being the focus of intense anti-Semitism throughout his career.  Greenberg was a hero and role model to many, and Kempner’s lovingly crafted and brilliantly researched film combines rare archival footage with interviews of family members and fans including Walter Matthau, Alan Dershowitz, Bob Feller, Ralph Kiner, and Ira Berkow.

Jeremiah O’Donovan Rossa was one of the most controversial figures in Irish history.  A committed Republican, he created the concept of bombing campaigns against England in the 1800’s.  His funeral in 1915 lit the fuse to revolution resulting in the rebellion of Easter 1916.  Today he is still revered in Republican circles.  Banished as an exile to the United States he continued to relentlessly campaign for Irish independence becoming an influential figure in Irish America.   One hundred years after his death his great grandsons investigate Rossa’s legacy and their relationship to their infamous relative.  Directed by Williams Rossa Cole, this journey explores Irish American identity as descendents of one of the most notorious and revered figures in Irish history.  Filmed in the centenary year of O’Donovan Rossa’s death, the grandsons find themselves not only observers of their relative’s commemorations, but actual participants. With original music composed by James Fearnley of the Pogues.

(2014), 99% – The Occupy Wall Street Collaborative Film (2013), the HBO feature Gun Fight (produced with Academy Award winner Barbara Kopple) and the documentary Giuliani Time.  He just completed producing a film about the poet WS Merwin that aired on PBS and is co-directing a film about the legendary publisher Barney Rosset (www.barneyswall.com).  Recently he filmed in places like Lebanon, Senegal, India, Thailand and Chile for the Rockefeller Foundation’s Dz100 Resilient Citiesdz initiative and has produced and directed over 60 short documentary profiles of authors for Open Road Integrated Media.  He was a Fulbright Scholar at the London School of Economics and a founder of the Brooklyn Rail (www.brooklynrail.org).

HIFF & East Hampton Library present “Gods & Monsters” directed by Bill Condon, with special guest Carter Burwell

Once a powerful Hollywood director best known for FRANKENSTEIN and THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, James Whale (Ian McKellen) is long since retired and in increasingly poor health. His stalwart housekeeper, Hanna (Lynn Redgrave), quietly disapproves of Whale’s faceless, nameless parade of young gay lovers, but when the director takes an interest in new gardener Clayton Boone (Brendan Fraser), a former Marine and Korean War veteran, it seems to be for something more than his usual casual conquest.

Our special guest will be Golden Globe nominee Carter Burwell, who scored the music for the film.
