Jacqui Lofaro, founder and executive director of Hamptons Doc Fest, which just celebrated its 15th year, December 1 to 6, with 25 screenings at the Sag Harbor Cinema and Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor, has announced that the winner of the 2022 Brown Harris Stevens Audience Award for Best Documentary Feature is the film “Turn Every Page: The Adventures of Robert Caro and Robert Gottlieb” which played on December 4 to a sold-out house at Sag Harbor Cinema.

Directed by Robert Gottlieb’s daughter Lizzie Gottlieb, the nearly two-hour film explores the remarkable and contentious 50-year relationship between the two literary legends — writer Robert Caro, 86 (who has a house in East Hampton), and his longtime editor Robert Gottlieb, 91, as they worked to publish Caro’s earlier Pulitzer Prize-winning biography “The Power Broker” about master builder Robert Moses, and the five volumes of Caro’s masterpiece “The Years of Lyndon Johnson” — the fifth volume of which is yet to be completed. The film’s title “Turn Every Page” refers to Caro’s exhaustive method of research.

“Congratulations to director Lizzie Gottlieb, to producers Joanne Nerenberg and Jen Small for their film ‘Turn Every Page: The Adventures of Robert Caro and Robert Gottlieb,’ on winning the Brown Harris Stevens Audience Award,” said Lofaro. “We couldn’t be happier.”

The mesmerizing documentary, five years in the making, will be coming to theaters on December 30, revealed Caro and director Gottlieb in the post-film Q&A hosted by Sag Harbor Cinema’s artistic director Giulia D’Agnolo Vallan.

“And now at festival’s end, I’d like to add that we were thrilled with the audience feedback to our 15th anniversary festival,” said Lofaro. “There were raves for the choice of films, the variety in the programming, the fabulous Q&As with so many of the filmmakers present, the receptions and even the warm weather. When all these boxes are checked, we know we’ve had success.”
