“Now in its eighth year, the SummerDocs series has become one of the most anticipated and respected film events in the New York and Hamptons summer calendar,” said Hamptons International Film Festival Co-Chairman and SummerDocs series presenter Alec Baldwin. “We are proud to once again screen some of the best in documentary filmmaking to our audiences and provide an insightful look into the process in conversations with leading filmmakers.”

Moviegoers will be captivated by the films that take them into the high-speed, cutthroat world of Wall Street trading, the fascinating world of a mysterious magazine sensation and an entertaining look into American politics.
