Talk at Parrish
The next installment of “Brain Food,” the Parrish Art Museum’s lunchtime series of illustrated talks, will feature Scott Howe, the Parrish’s deputy director, who will discuss the museum’s landscape design and its connection to the geology and history of Long Island and to the artists inspired by the natural beauty of the East End. Tickets cost $10, free for members, students, and children.
Slow food, sustainable agriculture, organic farming, and farm-to-table are terms that are so ubiquitous in the ever-expanding culinary world that hardly a restaurant opens today that doesn’t tout its use of locally sourced organic ingredients. By: Mark Segal
The Hamptons International Film Festival announced their annual awards Monday morning at the East Hampton Presbyterian Church.
The festival’s Audience Awards went to Stephen Frears’s “Philomena,” a drama starring Dame Judi Dench, and “Desert Runners,” Jennifer Steinman’s documentary about the 4 Deserts Race Series of 150-mile ultramarathons. Irene Taylor Brodsky’s “One Last Hug (…And a Few Smooches): Three Days at Grief Camp” won the Audience Award for Best Short.
Filmed in Bellport over a period of 18 days for $700,000, "The Maid's Room" has the look of an expensive Hollywood production. “We did everything we could to make a local film, but not a small film,” says Michael Walker, its director.
