Directed by Mike Nichols
(USA, 1983, 131 minutes)

In 1983, celebrated director Mike Nichols put his successful theater career on hold to tell the story of chemical technician and union labor activist Karen Silkwood. From a script by Alice Arlen, and a first time screenwriter named Nora Ephron, Nichols assembled an all star cast featuring Meryl Streep, Kurt Russell and Cher who gave one of her first dramatic performances on screen. The film would go on to be nominated for five Academy Awards, and its exploration of the importance of both whistleblowers and corporate accountability seems as relevant today as it did almost 40 years ago. A conversation about the film’s importance between HIFF Board chair Alec Baldwin and Artistic Director David Nugent will follow the screening.

Starring Meryl Streep, Kurt Russell and Cher.

Join us for this THAWFEST screening of this 5-time Oscar® nominee, followed by a conversation with HamptonsFilm Co-Chair Alec Baldwin.

And check out the entire THAWFEST lineup, entertaining the East End from March 6-29!
