Last Friday the Hamptons International Film Festival (@HamptonsFilm) hosted a sold-out screening of ETHEL (@Ethel_Movie), a documentary about Ethel Skakel, wife and much more to the late Robert Kennedy, as the final film in our SummerDocs series. The film was directed by Rory Kennedy, Ethel’s daughter, and we were lucky to have both women in attendance. Others in attendance were Sarah Davis, Jean Kennedy Smith and her son Michael Kennedy Smith. After the film concluded, Alec Baldwin (@ABFalecbaldwin) hosted a Q & A with Rory where they discussed of all things, Ethel, and what a powerhouse of a woman she continues to be. The film does an incredible job of connecting the Kennedy’s personal stories with that of our American history. Remembering the past, living in the present, and looking forward to the future seemed to be the theme of the night and Ethel for one, said she still has a lot of living ahead of her.
Thank you everyone who came out and supported our 2012 SummerDocs series! We hope to see you again for the 20th edition of the Hamptons International Film Festival on Oct. 4-8.
