A carpenter in Martha’s Vineyard takes off his tool belt and picks up a camera to document homeowners and builders who look the other way as he works with his community to pass a new bylaw to limit house size.
The Hamptons Take 2 Documentary Film Festival, now in its 10th year, is a nonprofit organization founded by filmmakers to champion and celebrate the rich, diverse and challenging world of documentary film. We recognize and honor film and filmmakers who deserve a closer look.
Expanding the field of visual tropes, methods and materials, the 23 female artists on view will offer an artistic spectrum that ranges from the sublime to the utilitarian, from expressionism to precision, and from humor to drama. Curated by Janet Goleas.
With Artist-in-Residence Andrea Cote, the public will participate in collaborative printmaking and video. Participants will come together over the course of two months in a series of movement and art-making workshops culminating in a performance and large-scale tapestry.
