On Sunday, April 23, at 2 p.m. at Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor, the Hamptons Take 2 Documentary Film Festival screens “The Pulitzer at 100,” a new documentary by Academy Award-winning and Emmy Award-winning director/producer Kirk Simon and co-producer Ron Simon, who is curator at The Paley Centre for Media in Manhattan.

The 90-minute documentary pays homage to the 100th anniversary of the Pulitzer Prizes, established by journalist and newspaper publisher Joseph Pulitzer and first awarded by Columbia University in 1917.

The film examines the history and impact of the awards, which yearly define excellence in journalism and the arts in 21 categories. It explores the lives of some of the Prize’s most accomplished recipients, such as Carl Bernstein, Robert Caro, Junot Diaz, Wynton Marsalis and Toni Morrison, and brings their work to life with readings by Helen Mirren, Liev Schreiber, John Lithgow and others.

Tickets at $15 are on sale online at www.ht2ff.com, or at the door. A Q&A will be held after the screening, with the director, producer and a possible surprise guest.
