dude's eye view


8 week workshop occurring in the spring for East Hampton High School boys.


This program came to be when we were receiving calls and emails from local parents of boys alarmed by the
onslaught of drug and alcohol abuse problems and suicides happening among some of our
boys in our community.


In its third year in partnership with the Hamptons International Film
Festival, Dude’s Eye View gathers young men together in conversation, friendship and
communication to offer a coping mechanism and a tool for self expression through film making.


Issues such as how we show up for one another, how we share emotions, and examining
various perspectives are all part of the artistic path as they’re taught how to convey their
uncensored views through images, music and text into a story. Led by two male teaching artists,
participants create their short, process-focused films that are then shown in a public screening
at Guild Hall and followed by a Q & A moderated by Sawyer Spielberg.


This program is free to participants.

Currently underwritten by The Derek Institute.
