Day Two of the Hamptons International Film Festival, its first full day, brought a wake-up call at 10 a.m. with a talk by women filmmakers one year after the start of the #MeToo movement. Throughout the day, related films such as "Roll Red Roll" and "Divide and Conquer: The Roger Ailes Story" screened in crowded theaters.

Maggie Gyllenhaal sat for the first of three planned conversations, this one with Alec Baldwin as moderator. Her film "The Kindergarten Teacher" was the opening night movie.

It was also the first day of the virtual reality experience "The Hidden" at the Mulford Farm. Annie Lukowski and BJ Schwartz's political thriller that drops the viewer right into the action. It will play through Monday, daily from noon to 4 p.m.

A more-than-four-hour screening of the documentary "Watergate" by Charles Ferguson at Guild Hall was also a centerpiece. The film features new interviews and footage that revisits the days before, during, and after the scandal that took down a presidency. The Star's editor, David Rattray, was the moderator of a the discussion after the screening.
