The Hamptons International Film Festival’s “25 Years: 25 Films” series will visit the Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor on Sunday at 6 p.m. with the 1999 film “Judy Berlin.” Edie Falco, who stars in the title role, will attend the screening and discuss it afterward.

Although Mario Cuomo famously said, “Campaign in poetry, govern in prose,” the reverse is more often true, especially in times of political upheaval, when stark divisions are exposed and disquieting questions about a nation’s character are raised. Throughout history, calamitous times often have us seeking solace — and wisdom — in verse.

Fifty years ago, Ron Jones, a young teacher in Palo Alto, Calif., devised an unusual project as an experiment for students in his sophomore high school history class. While it was mentioned only in the student newspaper at the time, it has since become the subject of a short story, a TV movie, a novelization, and a German feature film screened at Sundance, a musical, a documentary, and a full-length play.

Known as an extremely prolific composer, he produced symphonies, chamber music, piano works, and art songs, many of which are regarded as masterpieces.

"We bring in people who are wine educators," Chimene Macnaughton said of the workshops at Wainscott Main Wine and Spirits, "but we make it super-democratic. We want it to be welcoming even if all you know is that you like white wine."

A wealthy novelist husband. A hot-to-trot stepmother. A ne’er-do-well son. A loaded gun. What could possibly go wrong?
