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.

Film Screening “ELF,” Presented by Hamptons International Film Festival & East Hampton Library

The film stars Will Ferrell, James Caan, Ed Asner, and Zooey Deschanel. “ELF” screened at the Hamptons International’s 11th edition in 2003 as a Spotlight Film.

Buddy (Will Ferrell) was accidentally transported to the North Pole as a toddler and raised to adulthood among Santa’s elves. Unable to shake the feeling that he doesn’t fit in, the adult Buddy travels to New York, in full elf uniform, in search of his real father. As it happens, this is Walter Hobbs (James Caan), a cynical businessman. After a DNA test proves this, Walter reluctantly attempts to start a relationship with the childlike Buddy with increasingly chaotic results.
