D.W. Young’s The Booksellers returns to Now Showing the week of May 18th. The documentary shines a remarkable light on the rare book world, the antiquarian booksellers that safeguard the exceptional works, and the unique role they play in protecting history.
“From Capital in the Twenty-First Century‘s insightful examination of the evolving role of capital in modern society to Sweden’s moving entry into this year’s Oscar race, the lovely coming of age story And Then We Danced, and a brilliant examination of the culture of books in our lives today in The Booksellers, we are thrilled to showcase some incredible films in May’s Now Showing series that truly represent a wonderful range of current cinema for our audiences,” David Nugent, HamptonsFilm Artistic Director relayed.
