​Directed by Dzintars Dreibergs, Blizzard of Souls pays stark witness to the horrors and brutality of World War I, as seen through the eyes of an innocent 17-year-old farmhand turned soldier. He grows up on the battlefield, fighting at the side of his father and brother, whose lives are constantly in jeopardy. The film is available on-demand through Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center.

World of Wong Kar Wai
Now streaming.
Sag Harbor Virtual Cinema presents World of Wong Kar Wai, a monthlong program of movies by the Hong Kong director. Before the handover to China in 1997, Hong Kong was known for its thriving film industry, and in what is now considered its golden age, between the 1970s and 1990s, the former British colony was the world’s largest film exporter after Hollywood. Tickets are $12 for individual films or $70 for the full lineup.
