Directed by D.W. Young
(USA, 2019, 99 minutes)

Antiquarian booksellers are part scholar, part detective and part businessperson, and their personalities and knowledge are as broad as the material they handle. They also play an underappreciated yet essential role in preserving history. THE BOOKSELLERS takes viewers inside their small but fascinating world, populated by an assortment of obsessives, intellects, eccentrics and dreamers.

Executive produced by Parker Posey, the film features interviews with some of the most important dealers in the business, as well as prominent collectors, auctioneers, and writers such as Fran Lebowitz, Susan Orlean, Kevin Young and Gay Talese.


Tickets are $15 for general admission and $13 for HamptonsFilm and Guild Hall members. HamptonsFilm members: purchase tickets online from Guild Hall and select ‘member price’ to receive your discount (your name will be checked against our member roster). Enjoy!
