Video Previews: Bermuda Docs Weekend Films

May 15, 2012

A lush new documentary that provides an intimate view of the women whose images have defined our sense of beauty over the last five decades, and a sports adventure film that features some of the world’s most dramatic snowy landscapes, are the featured films at the ‘Weekend Film Series’ this coming Sunday, May 20.

“About Face: Supermodels Then and Now” will screen at 3 p.m., while Warren Miller’s ‘Like There’s No Tomorrow’ will screen at 5.15 p.m.

The documentary, which screened at the Sundance Film Festival in January, reveals the stories behind the magazine covers – the models are candid, charming, honest, and often very, very funny as they speak about their lives at the top, including the clubs, the drugs and celebrities, but also their careers in an industry built on, and by, their beauty.

Featuring Isabella Rosselini, Beverly Johnson, Marisa Berenson, Bethann Hardison, Cheryl Tiegs, China Machado, Carol Alt, Pat Cleveland, Christie Brinkley, Jerry Hall, and more, the models celebrate the gains of age and experience with infectious enjoyment in this fascinating portrait.

“Like There’s No Tomorrow” is the 62nd annual adventure sports film produced by Warren Miller Entertainment. It has toured the U.S., Canada, U.K., Australia and New Zealand – and will now screen in Bermuda for the first time.

The film features some of the world’s top skiers – including Chris Davenport, Julia Mancuso and Andy Mahre – touring the world’s most inspiring locales, including the legendary peaks of British Columbia’s Monashee Range, the striking Himalayas of Gulmarg, India, the southern hemisphere’s highest peak in Portillo, Chile, and a spot closer to home, the rugged peaks of New Hampshire’s Mount Washington, plus many more.


Tickets, $15, can be purchased in the Oceans Gift Shop at the BUEI, or by calling 297-7314.  The ‘Weekend Film Series’, sponsored by Gosling’s, is a joint production of Bermuda Documentary Film Festival director Duncan Hall and the BUEI.
