A local documentary that sold out three years ago will return to the big screen next week.

FABRIC: Portuguese History in Bermuda, directed and produced by Bermudian Milton Raposo, was screened at the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute four times in 2019 and each showing was sold out.

Mr Raposo said: “Now that Bermuda has reopened after the pandemic, it is time to bring the film back for at least two more showings.”

FABRIC dives into the more than 150-year history of Bermuda’s Portuguese community and took more than ten years to make.

Mr Raposo added: “The film also places Bermuda’s, Azores’ and Portugal’s positions in world history and the events that feed into those 151 years.”

The documentary will be screened twice on December 29 at the BUEI. The first showing will be at 3.30pm, followed by one at 6pm.

There will be a question-and-answer period after both screenings. Tickets for the event can be bought at Ptix.bm.
