The Hamptons International Film Festival’s SummerDocs series will continue in August with two more films: “Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me” on Aug. 12 and “The Short Game” on Aug. 30.
“Shoot Me” looks at Ms. Stritch, an 87-year-old Broadway veteran who was seen recently as Alec Baldwin’s mother on the television series “30 Rock.” The film features her friends Nathan Lane, George C. Wolfe, Hal Prince, Cherry Jones, Tina Fey, James Gandolfini, and John Turturro. It is scheduled for release next year.
“The Short Game” follows eight child golf prodigies competing at the World Championship of Junior Golf in Pinehurst, N.C. In Josh Greenbaum’s first feature, the stories “intertwine to form a fascinating and often funny portrait of a group of very young athletes and their families as they navigate the narrowly focused, peculiar, and highly competitive subculture of junior golf,” according to the festival.
Tickets for these films cost $22 and can be purchased through the Guild Hall box office.
