It's hard to believe it's been a whole year but here we are again at one of our favorite venues: The Hamptons International Film Festival. It's where we get to get up close and personal with some talented filmmakers and ask them about heir fascinating films and this year was especially fun. We start by talking to Ebs Burnough about his documentary "The Capote Tapes" which fetatures never-before-heard interviews and is a revelatory glimpse into author Truman Capote's life and work. Then Lesley Chilcott tells us about "Watson" which introduces us to Paul Watson, a lifelong defender of underwater ecosystems and environmental activist. The film also tells of the price he's paid for his fierce struggle. And finally, we have "Scandalous." Filmmaker Mark Landsman's probing look into the National Enquirer and tells how the sensational tabloid has pushed its own particular brand of fake news from the fringe into the mainstream. And that's not all folks!! Stay tuned for Part Two of our interviews from the Hamptons International Film Festival next week.
