Two at Halsey Mckay
Halsey Mckay Gallery in East Hampton is presenting concurrent solo exhibitions of work by Arielle Falk and Ted Gahl through Dec. 14.
The Southampton Cultural Center is ringing in the holiday season this weekend with its production of “It’s a Wonderful Life: A Radio Play.” Lest readers think they’re familiar with “It’s a Wonderful Life,” this play offers a pronounced twist on Frank Capra’s 1946, Oscar-nominated holiday classic and a completely different experience from the film.
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.
