The Greater Port Jefferson ~ Northern Brookhaven Arts Council Presents the Spring 2018 Port Jefferson Documentary Series! Each film will feature a guest speaker following the screening. There are seven films in the series, split between two different theaters: Theatre Three in Port Jefferson and Long Island Museum in Stony Brook.

The following films are being shown exclusively at Theatre Three:

March 19: CHINA HUSTLE (guest speaker to be announced) – Jed Rothstein’s documentary tells an unsettling and eye-opening Wall Street horror story about Chinese companies, the American stock market, and the need for transparency in an increasingly deregulated financial world by following those working to uncover the biggest heist you’ve never heard of.

April 9: THIS IS CONGO (with Director, Daniel McCabe) – Filmmaker Daniel McCabe examines multiple sides of the fractious war in the Democratic Republic of Congo. We meet soldiers, rebels and a diamond merchant known as Mama Romance who allow us to make human connections in a chaotic conflict.

April 16: ITZHAK (with Director, Alison Chernick) – Director, Alison Chernick’s documentary examines the life and music of Itzhak Perlman, widely considered one of the world’s greatest living violinists. Chernick creates a portrait of a man whose remarkable will to survive is never removed from his tremendous generosity and humor.
