CANCELLED: Artifishal: The Road to Extinction is Paved with Good Intentions

CANCELLED. Due to circumstances beyond our control we have to cancel this program. We hope to reschedule the screening so please check back!

Produced by Patagonia Films, Artifishal is a film about wild rivers and wild fish that explores the high cost—ecological, financial and cultural—of our mistaken belief that engineered solutions can make up for habitat destruction. The film traces the impact of fish hatcheries, and the extraordinary amount of public money wasted on an industry that hinders wild fish recovery, pollutes our rivers and contributes to the problem it claims to solve. Artifishal also dives beneath the surface of the open-water fish farm controversy, as citizens work to stop the damage done to public waters and our remaining wild salmon.

Dr. Carl Safina, who is featured in the film, will be in attendance for a post-screening Q&A.

Southampton Jewish Film Fest: Moritz Daniel Oppenheim – The First Jewish Painter 

RENTAL EVENT

Moritz Daniel Oppenheim, “the painter of the Rothschilds & the Rothschild of painters“, was not only the first Jewish artist with an academic background, but also an icon of Jewish emancipation in Germany. Young filmmaker Isabel Gathof searches out Oppenheim’s descendants and heritage in Germany, France and Israel, on the occasion of the world’s first monument built to the artist. Oppenheim was born in 1882 in Frankfurt am Main. He is often regarded as the first Jewish painter of the modern era. His work was informed by his cultural and religious roots at a time when many of his German Jewish contemporaries chose to convert to Christianity.

Southampton Jewish Film Fest: The Dybbuk

RENTAL EVENT

Boundaries separating the natural from the supernatural dissolve as ill-fated pledges, unfulfilled passions and untimely deaths ensnare two families in a tragic labyrinth of spiritual possession. The film was made on location in Poland in 1937 and brought together the best talents of Polish Jewry, script writers, composers, choreographers, set designers, actors and historical advisors. The exquisite musical and dance interludes evoke the cultural richness of both shtetl communities and Polish Jewry on the eve of World War II.

Who Gets to Call it Art? Screening and Panel Discussion

This documentary explores the iconoclastic life of museum curator Henry Geldzahler. A voice in the wilderness during the 1960s, Geldzahler championed the work of pop artists such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, who were not highly accepted in the art scene. Through footage from the era and interviews with artists, the film reveals Geldzahler’s contributions to the art world — including his landmark exhibition “New York Painting and Sculpture: 1940-1970” at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The screening followed by panel discussion moderated by Holly Peterson with Bob Colacello, Lisa Dennison, Met Director Max Hollein, Jane Holzer and Director/Producer Peter Rosen.
