The Hamptons International Film Festival (HIFF) screens The Zen Of Bennett part of the Summer Doc Series
Created and conceived by son Danny Bennett, The Zen Of Bennett is a seductive and soulful view into the mind of singer Tony Bennett as well as an intimate portrait of the artist’s creative process as he turns 85 years old.
In a first person narrative, Tony reflects back over his 60-year career while looking ahead within the context of his latest recording project. We experience inspirational insights as Tony discusses his philosophies of life, lessons learned and his passion for art and music.
Tony states, “The first record I ever made was St. James Infirmary Blues with a great Army orchestra in Germany right after WWII. It’s one of my favorites.”
“After a strong start in July, this is one of three that cap off one of our strongest SummerDocs line ups to date ” said Hamptons International Film Festival Director of Programming David Nugent. “Offering our audiences on the east end of Long Island an alternative to the traditional summer fare is part of our mission as an organization, and we continue to be thrilled with this series’ popularity.”
Alec Baldwin will moderate a Q&A with the Director, Danny Bennett and Tony Bennett directly following the screening.
