A Hamptons audience will have the unique and extraordinary opportunity to hear from iconic film star and HamptonsFilm Board of Directors Co-Chair Alec Baldwin during an upcoming HamptonsFilm presentation ofThe Mission. On Saturday, February 8, Roland Joffe's 1986 period drama will screen at Guild Hall in East Hampton as part of HamptonsFilm's Now Showing series.

"Director Roland Joffé gave us some great films (The Killing Fields, Fat Man and Little Boy) but The Mission is his magnum opus. With cinematography by Chris Menges, a remarkable cast and music by Ennio Morricone, the film is both gorgeous and powerful," Baldwin, who will take part in a post film conversation, noted.

The film stars Jeremy Irons, Robert De Niro, Liam Neeson, Aidan Quinn, Ray McAnally, and Cherie Lunghi. The Mission follows Father Gabriel (Irons), a Jesuit priest that is sent to the jungles of Brazil to construct a mission station and convert a Guaraní community to Christianity. Upon arriving, he encounters Rodrigo Mendoza (Robert De Niro), a reformed slave trader looking for redemption that joins Father Gabriel's efforts. When Portugal purchases Brazil from Spain, and the Portuguese government seek to use the natives for slave labor, the duo must band together and put their differences aside to preserve the mission.

The event will begin at 6 p.m. Tickets are $25 ($20 for members).

Additional HamptonsFilm viewings will include a Dinner + A Movie Series (Air, Land + Sea) Conscience Point screening on Wednesday, February 12 at Tutto Il Giorno in Sag Harbor, Now Showing: Ordinary Love on Saturday, February 15 at Guild Hall and Now Showing: The Booksellers on Saturday, February 22 at Guild Hall.

Guild Hall is located at 158 Main Street in East Hampton. For more information, visit hamptonsfilmfest.org.
