Now Showing: ‘THE BOOKSELLERS’

HamptonsFilm is pleased to continue to curate the hit screening series NOW SHOWING, featuring acclaimed first-run, art house, independent, and world cinema. The only difference is that now screenings take place in the privacy of your own home.


THE BOOKSELLERS

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

“Lovely and wistful… a documentary for anyone who can still look at a book and see a dream, a magic teleportation device, an object that contains the world.” Variety

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.


This week’s “screening” will support HamptonsFilmGuild Hall, and the distributor (Greenwich Entertainment). Follow us @HamptonsFilm on social media for future releases.
