SummerDocs Slideshow: CIRCUS OF BOOKS

On Saturday, August 24, HIFF wound down our 11th summer of SummerDocs, presented in partnership with Guild Hall, with the intimate and eccentric family portrait CIRCUS OF BOOKS, directed by Rachel Mason.

After the screening, HIFF Co-Chair Alec Baldwin and Artistic Director David Nugent engaged in a deep-dive Q&A with Rachel Mason and film subject Karen Mason on stage at Guild Hall.

The screening was preceded by a lovely reception at a private home in East Hampton. Thanks to our hosts, HIFF Board members Mary Jane Brock and Pat Swinney Kaufman. We are already looking forward to the return of SummerDocs in 2020!

Special thanks to Evan Kulman of the Kulman Team at Compass, our sponsor for the evening. And thanks to Candescent Films for their continued support of SummerDocs.

CIRCUS OF BOOKS is a Netflix release.
