Now in its 14th year, HamptonsFilm SummerDocs series concludes with Showtime’s “Nothing Lasts Forever,” directed by Jason Kohn, on Friday, August 12, at 7 p.m. at the Regal U.A. theater in East Hampton. Following the screening, HamptonsFilm Artistic Director David Nugent will lead conversations with Kohn.
Hidden from public view, a war is raging inside the diamond industry. When filmmaker Jason Kohn infiltrates this highly secretive world, he uncovers a vast, far reaching crime that threatens the value of every diamond ever mined. At stake is nothing less than the universal symbol of love and commitment — the engagement ring. Featuring some of the most colorful and powerful industry insiders, “Nothing Lasts Forever,” a Berlinale 2022 premiere, launches viewers deep inside a criminal investigation and forces them to reconsider the creation of value itself.
“SummerDocs is an annual highlight for our audiences out east, and we are delighted to welcome film lovers to East Hampton to enjoy the fine documentaries Alec and David have worked hard to carefully select,” said HamptonsFilm Executive Director Anne Chaisson.
“As always, we strive to program our SummerDocs series with some of the year’s most talked-about documentaries, and our fourteenth edition is no exception,” said Nugent. “We are excited to share a diverse lineup of award-winning films that illustrate incredible stories and topical issues that matter to our audiences.”
