HamptonsFilm presents NOW SHOWING The Booksellers
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.
We at HamptonsFilm and Guild Hall are committed to connecting our audiences with terrific new films through our popular Now Showing series. Until we can safely meet again, we’re delighted to announce that our weekly model will continue, moving from our recent screenings at Guild Hall onto your personal screens in the privacy of your own home.
