Lineup for Gold Coast International Film Festival (11/12)

ModernRuin_500MODERN RUIN: A WORLD’S FAIR PAVILION
Dir. Matthew Silva | USA | English | 78 min | Documentary
Sponsored by the Amsterdam at Harborside
Long Island Premiere The New York State Pavilion, once the shining symbol of the 1964/65 World’s Fair, now sits as a haunting reminder of what became of the age of optimism. Through surprising and informative interviews, we learn the story of the Fair, from its glory days to its brief iterations as a 60s concert venue and 70s roller rink, to the years of neglect and the recent grass-roots restoration advocacy efforts. Q&A with Director Matthew Silva and Joseph Tirella, author of Tomorrow-Land: The 1964-65 World’s Fair and the Transformation of America. 2:00pm, Bow Tie Great Neck
Includes lunch before film at the Gold Coast Arts Center

(DIS)HONESTY:  THE TRUTH ABOUT LIES
Dir. Yael Melamede | USA | English | 90 min | Documentary
Presented in partnership with the Nassau County Bar Association
Lying gets easier the more you do it—that is, until you get caught.  This humorous and engaging documentary, inspired by the work of behavioral economist Dan Ariely, interweaves personal stories, expert opinions, behavioral experiments, and archival footage and creates a fascinating and insightful inquiry into why people lie and the very real effects it can have. Q&A with Director Yael Melamede and Ethics law experts Kevin Kearon, Esq., Steven Leventhal, Esq. and Omid Zareh, Esq. 6:00pm, Soundview PW
Optional CLE credit will be offered at the event for practicing attorneys.

PARTNER WITH THE ENEMY
Dir. Duki Dror, Chen Shelach | Israel | Hebrew and Arabic with English subtitles | 60 min | Documentary
Long Island Premiere In the midst of the ever-fraught Israeli-Palestinian political landscape, two women—one Israeli and one Palestinian—attempt the seemingly impossible: to build a business together. Suspenseful, moving, and not without humor, this is the story of a very special bond facing challenges of all shapes and sizes. Q&A with film subjects Anat Shelach and Rola Srouji. 7:30pm, Bow Tie Great Neck
Followed by dessert reception at LOLA
