Hamptons Doc Fest: KING BIBI

This film tells the remarkable, timely and controversial story of Benjamin Netanyahu’s rise to power, reflected through four decades of public appearances that changed Israel forever. “Bibi,” as he is known, evolved from Israel’s great political hope, to a controversial figure whom some perceive as Israel’s savior, and others as a cynical politician who will stop at nothing to retain his power. According to Director Dan Shadur, it is Bibi’s obsession with his reputation that threatens his rule.

Hamptons Doc Fest: 17 BLOCKS

Nine year old Emmanuel began filming himself and his family with a home video camera in 1999, capturing his Washington D.C. neighborhood through the eyes of an innocent child. Growing up just 17 blocks from the U.S. Capitol, however, proved more difficult than one might expect. Director Davy Rothbart began filming the members of the Sanford-Durant family after he met Emmanuel and his older brother in 1999 at a local basketball court and befriended them as they continued to document their daily life over two decades in a city plagued by poverty, addiction and gun violence.

Hamptons Doc Fest: HOLLYWOOD’S SECOND WORLD WAR

Hollywood’s Second World War tells the story of four Hollywood directors of European origin, who returned to the “Old World” during World War II to make propaganda documentaries for the U.S. Army at the front: William Wyler from Alsace, Frank Capra from Italy, Anatole Litvak from Ukraine and, in post-war Germany, Billy Wilder from Austria. The four men, three of whom came from Jewish families, risked their lives at times for their new homeland and returned to the U.S. with serious physical and psychological injuries. Their films are unique, long-forgotten documentaries dealing with the front line in Italy and the bombardment of Germany through to the liberation of Dachau.
