Sag Harbor Cinema to Present Volker Schlondorff Film
The Sag Harbor Cinema Arts Center will present the U.S. premiere of “Return to Montauk,” a film by Volker Schlondorff, on Saturday at 7 p.m. at Guild Hall. Shot in Montauk, Amagansett, and New York City, the story concerns a writer who travels from Berlin to New York to publicize his new book. While there, he is reunited with a former lover, and they spend a weekend in Montauk, hoping to discover whether or not they have a future together.
Mr. Schlondorff, who spends summers in Amagansett, and the Irish writer Colm Toibin adapted the film from Max Frisch’s 1975 novel “Montauk.” Tickets are $20, $150 with a reception at the Maidstone Hotel.
