BUEI to hold screening of ‘Amy’

The highest-grossing British documentary in United Kingdom box-office history is to screen in Bermuda.

Amy, by director Asif Kapadia, tells the story of six-times Grammy winner Amy Winehouse, in her own words.

After premiering at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, the film recorded the best opening weekend ever for a British documentary en route to setting the overall box-office record. In doing so, Amy surpassed Mr Kapadia's previous documentary, Senna.

The only documentary to lead Amy at the UK box office is Michael Moore's 2004 American film Fahrenheit 9/11.

Amy, which has topped $5 million at the UK box office, is also a hit in the United States, where box-office receipts have exceeded $8 million.

The film will screen on Sunday at 5.15pm at the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute as part of a Weekend Film Series double bill.

The other film on the bill, Mr Holmes, starring Ian McKellen and Laura Linney, will screen at 3pm.

Tickets to both films are on sale now at the Oceans Gift Shop, BUEI, or by calling 294 0204. Trailers of the films can be viewed at www.bermudadocs.com.
