Film: SOUR GRAPES + Pre-Screening “Meet Director” Wine&Cheese Reception

July 6 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$7 - $12

*5-6pm, “Meet the Director” Wine & Cheese Reception
6-8pm, Screening of SOUR GRAPES + Q&A
4:30-6pm, Midnight Rum — Long Island & Prohibition Exhibit
Guest Speaker for “Q and A”: Reuben Atlas, Co-Director

Set in the super-fast, super-rich world of LA and New York during the financial boom of the early 2000s, in the lead up to the 2008 financial crash, and featuring the obsessive collectors, outraged wine producers, suspect auction houses, and specialist FBI sleuths, SOUR GRAPES is an “Emperor’s New Clothes” fable for the modern age. The film traces the story of the millions of dollars made from the sale of fake vintage wine, which flooded a susceptible luxury market with counterfeits that still lie undetected in cellars across the world. Winner of Best Documentary at the Key West Film Festival.
Time: 85 minutes
