The third day of the Hamptons International Film Festival began with a panel of young and emerging actors and ended with a meditation on death and decay.

In between there were screenings of a new documentary by Barbara Kopple, a sneak peek at "The Hate U Give," a dynamic conversation between Alec Baldwin and Emilo Estevez, parties, more screenings, and even more everything.

The Saturday Centerpiece Film was Damien Chazelle's "First Man." An intense and masterful evocation of the emotional, mental, and physical toll of the space race on the very real humans who made it happen, it was greated warmly by a packed Guild Hall theater. The film was followed by a conversation with David Nugent, the festival's artistic director, with Mr. Chazelle, the screenwriter Josh Singer, the composer Justin Hurwitz, and the cinematographer Linus Sandgren.
