‘In the Gaza Sea’

At Guild Hall

    The 10th annual free winter film series at Guild Hall, presented in partnership with the East Hampton Library, kicks off Sunday at 4:30 p.m. with “A Bottle in the Gaza Sea,” the story of a 17-year-old French girl who emigrates to Israel with her family. Distressed by the hatred between Israelis and Palestinians, she writes a letter expressing her feelings and puts it into a bottle that her brother throws into the sea near Gaza. A few weeks later, she receives an email from a young Palestinian boy, and a long-distance friendship develops.

    An international co-production, shot in French, Arabic, and Hebrew, the film is based on a young-adult novel by Valerie Zenatti.

    Upcoming programs include “Teddy Bear,” a Danish film that will be screened on Jan. 19, and “La Sirga,” a drama set in Colombia, scheduled for Jan. 26.
