The Last Fix: An Addict's Passage from Hell to Hope

The Last Fix: An Addict's Passage from Hell to Hope

Monday, June 24, 2019 at 7pm Hampton Library, Bridgehampton (42mins)

A Film by Jacqui Lofaro and Victor Teich.

Q&A with Judge Deborah Kooperstein of the Drug Court.

A compelling journey with convicted drug offenders who opt for a tough and pioneering drug court on the East End of Long Island rather than prison. Three stories tell of drug-ravaged addicts thrown a lifeline out of crime and jail into treatment and recovery. The film reveals an intimate look into wrecked lives and the staggering costs that lead to crimes of prostitution, robbery, and theft to pay street dealers.

The Last Fix is a passage from hell to hope, the struggle to stay clean in drug court and the joyous victory celebrations at graduation.

The Last Fix shines a spotlight on alternative sentencing, a seismic shift in the criminal justice system that embraces treatment over punishment.

HALSTON

HALSTON

Sunday, July 14 at 6:00pm at The Southamptons Arts Center

America’s first superstar designer, Halston rose to international fame in the 1970s, creating an empire and personifying the dramatic social and sexual revolution of the last century. Reaching beyond the glitz and glamour, acclaimed filmmaker Frédéric Tcheng reveals Halston’s profound impact on fashion, culture, and business.

HALSTON captures the epic sweep of the life and times of the legendary designer Roy Halston Frowick, the man who set women free with his unstructured designs and strove to “dress all of America." Framing the story as an investigation featuring actress and writer Tavi Gevinson as a young archivist diving into the Halston company records, Tcheng expertly weaves rare archival footage and intimate interviews with Halston’s family, friends and collaborators including Jacqueline Kennedy, Liza Minnelli, Andy Warhol and Iman. What results is a behind-the-headlines look into the thrilling struggle between Halston’s artistic legacy and the pressures of big business.

Film presented in collaboration with the Southampton Arts center

Deputized: ¿Cómo Pudo Pasar?

Deputized: ¿Cómo Pudo Pasar?

Monday August 26 at 7:00pm Hampton Library, Bridgehampton (86 mins)

A film by Susan Hagedorn and Amanda Zinoman

Q&A with Susan Hagedorn

Deputized is a film about the political and social context surrounding the murder of undocumented immigrant Marcelo Lucero.

In 2008 the story made national headlines when Lucero was assaulted by a group of teenaged boys cruising the streets "beaner–hopping," a term used to describe the ritual of attacking Latinos for sport. The documentary exposes how the adolescent "game" was ignored for at least half of decade by Suffolk County, Long Island police and officials, resulting in the fatal stabbing of Lucero. The film probes a community that tacitly approved of anti-immigrant violence.

Long Island native Susan Hagedorn, director and producer of the film remarked, "This crime could have happened anywhere. Until we have full equality for immigrants, we are all at risk. Deputized provides a balanced look at the multiple factors in the community and country that killed Marcelo Lucero and left Suffolk County residents asking themselves, "¿Cómo Pudo Pasar?" or, in English, "How could this happen?"

The Only Real Game

The Only Real Game

Monday July 29 at 7:00pm at Hampton Library, Bridgehampton (82 mins)

A film by by Mirra Bank Narrated by Academy Award winner Melissa Leo

Q&A with Mirra Bank, Director

The Only Real Game explores the power of baseball for people in a remote and troubled place. The once princely state of Manipur, in volatile northeast India, defies gun violence, drug trafficking, and HIV/AIDS through a surprising passion for America’s national pastime.

Manipur entered the Indian Union under protest in 1949, triggering a corrosive separatist conflict. For decades baseball has delivered release from daily struggles and a dream for healing a wounded society. This dream moves toward reality when First Pitch - a band of baseball-loving New Yorkers - and two Major League Baseball Envoy coaches join Manipuri men, women and children to “Play Ball.”

With gifted women and girls among the best players, as well as leaders of peace and justice initiatives, this Manipuri story brings us to the heart of the Great American Game, or as Babe Ruth called it, “the only real game in the world.”
