Nika Nesgoda recently discovered that Stormy Daniels, the porn star whose alleged 2006 affair with the president has captured international attention, had modeled for her in 2002 under a slightly different name.
Placed in the mix of dramas, docs, shorts, and talks at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival, which wrapped up on Sunday, were a couple of small film projects that involved some of the bolder-faced names of East Hampton.
Day Two of the Hamptons International Film Festival, its first full day, brought a wake-up call at 10 a.m. with a talk by women filmmakers one year after the start of the #MeToo movement. Throughout the day, related films such as "Roll Red Roll" and "Divide and Conquer: The Roger Ailes Story" screened in crowded theaters.
Maggie Gyllenhaal sat for the first of three planned conversations, this one with Alec Baldwin as moderator. Her film "The Kindergarten Teacher" was the opening night movie.
In the midst of announcements for its main event in October, on Sept. 22 the Hamptons International Film Festival will screen a documentary on Jane Fonda by Susan Lacy, a Noyac resident.
The screening of "Jane Fonda in Five Acts," at Guild Hall at 6 p.m., will be followed by a discussion with Ms. Lacy and Alec Baldwin. The documentary is a reflection back on the actress's 80 years of filmmaking and activism, making use of a distillation of 21 hours of interviews.
