The U.S. Consulate is partnering with the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute (BUEI) to offer a free summer film series May – August. The public is welcome to attend a free matinee on the last Saturday of each month featuring films that cover a range of interesting topics from women in science, ocean conservation, endangered wildlife and American history.
The festival begins on Saturday, May 26 at BUEI with a screening of Hidden Figures, the incredible story of three brilliant African-American women working at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) who served as the brains behind the launch into orbit of astronaut John Glenn. The visionary trio – Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson – crossed all gender and racial lines and inspired generations. The film features Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe. Showtime starts at 2:00 p.m. and seating is first come first served. Admission is free however, you can reserve a ticket for entry at BUEI’s Ocean’s Gift Shop, by calling 292-7219 or online at ptix.bm
The summer film series will continue on June 30, July 28 and August 25 with the titles released during the first week of each month. Follow the U.S. Consulate and BUEI on Facebook and Twitter for more updates.
