Along with offering "all docs, all day," the 9th annual Hamptons Take 2 Documentary Film Festival (HT2FF) will fête filmmaker Alex Gibney
with HT2FF's Career Achievement Award during a Gala on Saturday, December 3rd.
"It is a great privilege to present our 2016 Career Achievement Award to Alex Gibney, who has been called 'the most important documentarian of our time' and 'one of America's most successful and prolific documentary filmmakers,'" expressed HT2FF founder and executive director Jacqui Lofaro
The festivities will begin with a cocktail buffet reception at 7 p.m., followed by opening remarks and the presentation of the Career Achievement Award at 8 p.m. Gibney's latest film, Zero Days
, will screen at 8:30 p.m. Considered the most comprehensive accounting to date of how a covert assignment devised by two allies with contradictory goals opened the "Pandora's box" of cyberwar, the documentary covers cyberwar and Stuxnet, the self-replicating computer malware that the United States and Israel used to terminate a vital element of an Iranian nuclear facility.
"Easily the most important film anyone has released this year, it is a documentary that deserves to be seen by every sentient citizen of this country—and indeed the world," said Godfrey Cheshire of www.rogerebert.com
about the film.
The evening will conclude with a Q&A with Gibney, led by Ron Simon from the Paley Center for Media.
Gibney's impressive resume includes directing 28 documentaries, as well as serving as producer on various projects. He earned an Academy Award for Taxi to the Dark Side,
and has also won several Emmys, multiple Peabodys, a Grammy, the Writers Guild Award, the Independent Spirit Award, and many other prestigious honors.
The filmmaker is responsible for Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, The Armstrong Lie, We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks, Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God, Park Avenue: Money, Power and the American Dream, Casino Jack and the United States of Money, Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer and Casino Jack and the United States of Money
