Hamptons Take 2 will present an evening with the documentary filmmaker Roger Sherman tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. at the Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor, at which the half-hour film “Zapruder & Stolley: Witness to an Assassination” will be shown, its first showing in New York State.
The evening also includes a screening of “Alexander Calder,” a 60-minute film on the life and work of the American kinetic sculptor.
“Zapruder & Stolley” focuses on one of the most studied films ever made by an amateur photographer, Abraham Zapruder, as President John F. Kennedy’s motorcade passed through Dealey Plaza in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963, telling the story of Richard Stolley, then the Dallas bureau chief for Life magazine, who raced to the scene and obtained the rights to reprint the stills.
“Alexander Calder,” narrated by Tony Roberts, had its world premiere at the Whitney Museum of American Art and won an Emmy Award as part of the PBS “American Masters” series. It shows Calder at work in his Connecticut studio and features archival footage of films, photos, and many of the artist’s mobiles in dynamic motion.
Tickets are $15 at the door. More information can be found at HT2FF.com or baystreet.org.
Question-and-answer sessions with Mr. Sherman, who has a house in East Moriches, will follow each film.
