Hello darlings, Welcome back to Cognacs Corner Magazine.

On Thursday, September 1st I attended a Special Screening of  'Bombay Beach' at Guild Hall in East Hampton.

Director Alma Harel joined Actor Alec  Baldwin for a question and answer following the screening of her film, 'Bombay Beach.' The rusting relic of a failed 1960s development boom, the Salton Sea is a barren Californian landscape often seen as a symbol of the failure of the American Dream. First-time director Alma Har'el revisits this poetically fruitful terrain in her distinctive documentary 'Bombay Beach,' and finds there a motley cast including a bipolar seven-year-old, a lovelorn high school football star, and an octogenarian poet-prophet. Together they make up a triptych of American manhood in its decisive moments, populating the Salton Sea's land of thwarted opportunity. True to her roots as a photographer, video artist, and music video director, Har'el crafts here an adamantly atypical and artistically innovative film. A dreamlike poem that sets the personal stories of these distinctive yet familiar characters to a stylized amalgam of observational documentary and choreographed dance, with music by Beirut and Bob Dylan, all cast against the atmospheric scenery of the titular ghost town.

Until my next Hampton Red Carpet Event and Movie Premiere.
